‘Nigerian roads are not that bad’ – Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, says Nigerian roads are not as bad and deplorable as citizens portray them to be.

Fashola stated this while addressing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, November 6, 2019,

He has, however, blamed poor funding and delays in acquiring road construction supplies for the poor performance of his ministry since 2015.

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

“When I announce that a particular amount was approved for a contract, that doesn’t mean the amount has been paid, contrary to what you suggest’’.

“You are mindful also that minister of finance, different arms of government are escalating the fiscal challenges we face as a nation in trying to fund the budget.”
