Repair bad roads, NURTW begs Ogun govt
The National Union of Road Transport Workers in Ifo, Ogun State, has appealed to the state government to repair bad roads in the state in order to reduce road accidents.
Mr Sodipo Kolawole, the Vice-Chairman of the branch, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ota, Ogun, on Sunday.
Kolawole said that most of the bad roads were death traps for motorists.
He said that the deplorable state of the roads had contributed to accidents on the highways.
“The bad roads damage our vehicles and means we are constantly spending money to repair them.
“This development also makes our vehicles to be in poor condition and ever in need of repair,’’ he said.
The NURTW boss, however, urged the Federal Government and states to redouble efforts in fixing bad roads to make them motorable.
He also appealed to the Federal Road Safety Commission, Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps and the police to perform their roles diligently toward making the highways safe for users.
