Fashola says Nigerian Roads are “not that bad,” Nigerians say maybe he should Take a Roadtrip



The Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said that our roads are not as bad as they are portrayed, and, well, Nigerians are not having it.

Punch reports that Fashola made this comment shortly after the Federal Executive Council meeting, where ₦58.4billion was approved for the construction of Bida-Sachi-Nupeko road and the Nupeko-Patigi Bridge across River Niger, linking Nupeko and Patigi in Niger and Kwara states.

“The roads are not as bad as they are often portrayed.” the minister said. “I know that this is going to be your headline, but the roads are not that bad”

Well, Nigerians disagree.

Twitter users have begun to share photos of the very many bad roads across the country, imploring the former Lagos State governor to take a road trip.

How will he know if the roads are bad, they said, if his primary route of Lagos to Abuja is plied through the air?

See what Nigerians have to say:

    In 2019, these lawyers are still willing to say anything, thank God for photo and video evidence. however like one of those who responded said, maybe thats why they are calling for social media bill.

    Fashola’s comment on bad roads has just proven to us that this government has got nothing to offer. It is until you see that there is a problem that you will make efforts to solve it. For a minister who says the roads are not as bad means fixing the road is not part of his agenda. These guys are just there to loot our funds and we are sitting back smiling
