A foremost consultant engineer and former member of Anambra Vision 2070 under former Governor Willie Obiano, Engr. Chris Okoye has called for a critical review of Nigeria’s transportation sector.

He stated this at the 2023 Conference/Annual General Meeting and Third Fellowship Conferment Ceremony of the Nigerian Institution of Highway and Transportation Engineers (NIHTE), themed “Transportation and Road Sector Reform: Pathway to Economic Growth” in Abuja.

Okoye said unless things are put into proper perspective regarding roads in Nigeria, the country will remain lagging in the comity of nations.

He pointed out that road transportation remains the backbone of Nigeria’s economy, constituting 90 per cent of the movement of goods and services across the country.

He also highlighted that the lack of proper regulation has been the bane of roads in Nigeria and advocated sustainable road funding.

“The focus of this lecture was to review the entire transportation sector and to establish the close correlation between transportation sector development and the competitiveness of our national economy,” he said.
