He noted that the conditions of the roads and the attendant heavy traffic jam had bought untold hardship and nightmare to travelers and other road users.

According to him, the roads are currently a death trap for road users and commuters and a source of worry to residents.

“The roads are inaccessible and deplorable and if urgent steps are not taken at this peak of the rainy season, it will cause more excruciating sufferings and horrendous havoc to the citizenry and road users.

“The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, should pay urgent working visits to the roads for on the spot assessment of the despicable condition of the roads.

“He should direct Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) to commence palliative rehabilitating works on the roads,’’ he said.
