The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, SAN, insisted on Wednesday that Nigerian roads were not that bad as often portrayed.
Speaking shortly after the Federal Executive Council meeting, he said reports on the poor state of the country’s roads were mere hypes.
- The roads are not as bad as they are often portrayed. I know that this is going to be your headline, but the roads are not that bad – Fashola
- The minister is not in touch with reality. He needs to speak with his road maintenance engineers and get information about the true situation of Nigerian roads – NECA
