Declare state of emergency on roads, Reps tell FG

The House of Representatives has asked the Federal Government to declare state of emergency on Nigerian roads, particularly the federal highways.

In a resolution lawmakers passed in Abuja on Thursday, they listed the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway as one of the roads the government must not treat with levity because of its “strategic economic importance.”

Other roads that need major repairs, according to the lawmakers, are Abuja-Lokoja-Okene road; Makurdi-Otukpo-9th Mile-Enugu road; Owo-Kare-Kabba road; Ikare-Omuo-Kabba road; Enugu-Awka-Onitsha road; Okene-Obajana road; Ikpele-Kabba road; and Okigwe-Umuahia road.

They called for immediate “measures” to rehabilitate or reconstruct the roads to reduce the suffering and risks faced by road users.
