The Minister of Housing and Works, Babatunde Fashola has reacted to the backlash that trailed his comment of Nigerian roads not being as bad as it is portrayed to be [READ HERE].
The former Governor of Lagos state who spoke in Ilara- Mokin, Ifedore local government area of Ondo state while inaugurating some roads financed by Michael Ade-Ojo, chairman of Toyota Nigeria Limited said his comment was taken out of context.
“Let me start from the journey by roads to the 36 states, 12 hours every day, so I know what I saw, and I also said what I wanted to say in that press conference, and thankfully, I must thank your TV Channels, at least, showing the maturity and the professionalism responsibility to play the whole tape, so people can see the context of what I said,” he said.
“I didn’t use the word ‘exaggerated’, I didn’t say that. Please go and listen to what I said, thank you.”
Fashola also reiterated that the federal government will not refund any state that rehabilitates or reconstructs federal roads.
