The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, to resign immediately and apologize to Nigerians over his ”unpardonable comment” that the terrible state of roads in the nation is being exaggerated.
Fashola at a press conference on Wednesday November 7th, said Nigerian roads are not as bad as Nigerians portray them to be. Read here.
In a statement released by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP described Fashola’s comment as unfortunate, ”especially coming from the Minister of Works, who ought to be apologetic for the decrepit state of roads across the country since the last four years he has been minister. ”
The party described the Minister’s comment as a
”violent assault on the sensibility of over 200 million Nigerians and further demonstrates the disdain with which the Buhari administration holds our citizens who lost their lives and many more who daily undergo mental and physical torture using our dilapidated roads”.
The statement added that every Nigerian knows that most of the roads across the country are in a sorry state.
The PDP holds that the minister’s comment must be premeditated and reflects the official position of the Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration, which has no regard for Nigerians and only thrives in propaganda and false claims to cover its failures in governance.
