FG, please rehabilitate some highways

I write to bring to the notice of the federal government , which is saddled with the responsibility of rehabilitating and constructing the country’s federal roads, the frightening encounters of motorists, especially commercial ones, on the dumpy condition of some highways in some states of the federation.

Let me begin with Niger State, where multiple reports suggest that kidnappers and bandits are taking advantage of the unintended slowdown of motorists to carry out their nasty acts due to the deteriorating condition of these roads. For instance, the road connecting Lambatta, Lapai, Agaei and Bida in Niger State has deteriorated, making travel difficult.

Secondly, the federal road linking Kabba and Ifele junction in Ondo State has also been damaged.

Similarly, the road connecting Okene in Kogi State and Okpella in Edo State has also been worsened. Also, the road connecting Iwu to Ekwama is a menace to road users.

For Nigerians plying these roads to go about their activities easily, they must be repaired.

 The issue also threatens economic activities as traders lose a lot due to delays and difficulties they experienced on such bad roads.

Furthermore, the lives of innocent people are being lost as a result of the avoidable tragedies that repeatedly occur on these roads, all attributed to their horrible conditions.

I, therefore, urge the Federal Ministry of Works and the relevant state governors to immediately collaborate to ensure these roads receive urgent rehabilitation.
