Sordid state of Nigerian roads

IT was the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, who stirred the hornet’s nest. During a briefing session with State House Correspondents, after the weekly Executive Council meeting, in early November, the Minister was reported to have declared that “the roads are not as bad as often portrayed – the roads are not that bad”.

MY association with the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation, NDIC, goes a long way, to its birth in 1989, when many of my colleagues across the services were attracted to join the fledgling corporation. Since then, I have watched the corporation grow from its humble beginnings in the rented offices on the 14th floor of the National Bank building, on the ever busy Broad Street in the very heart of the business district of Lagos, to the resplendent building it now occupies in the centre of Abuja’s business district.
