The Federal Government has appealed to road users to stop the misuse of roads as it threatens their safety and could lead to unnecessary loss of lives and property.
Director of Highway Construction and Rehabilitation, Ministry of Works and Housing, Funsho Adebiyi, made the appeal in Abuja yesterday while addressing reporters on the state of federal roads.

Adebiyi said: “What we have in the current situation is that the drivers now run on the shoulder but as they approach the flyover, it closes down into 2 lanes, they don’t realize that what they were using was not actually a carriageway but a shoulder and erroneously conclude that the Engineers were reducing the width of the road to 2 instead of 3 carriageways.”
