Oluseun Onigbinde, a fiscal transparency advocate, on Saturday, September 2, 2023, asked Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State, to “do the right thing” with regard to the Ajuwon Akute road.
TOP MEDIA reports that the road, which is adjacent a prominent commercial bank at Asore Bus-stop in Ogun state, southwest Nigeria, is currently in a bad state.
An X (formerly Twitter) user, @PhemzDaws, had posted pictures of the road and urged the chairperson of Ifo local government area (LGA) to “save our soul”.
Onigbinde quoted the tweet, expressing dissatisfaction with the state of the road.
“For how long will this be?
“@dabiodunMFR, please have the fear of God. Do the right thing.”
TOP MEDIA reports that Nigerian roads are generally either in a state of disrepair, poorly maintained, or altogether untarred.
Practically every Nigerian and every sector of the Nigerian economy relies on one form of transportation or the other, with road being the most utilised means. This, therefore, connotes that a good road network where commuters arrive at their destination without any delay occurring from bad roads, or where goods are safely and timeously transported from one location to the other is bound to foster economic progress.
