The number of accidents that have occurred as a result of bad roads in the state is alarming. As a result, the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Ogun, appealed to the government to repair bad roads in Ogun state so as to reduce road accidents in the area.
An appeal was made by Mr. Sodipo Kolawole, the Vice-Chairman of the branch during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ota, Ogun last Sunday.
Mr. Sodipo said that most of the bad roads were death traps for Ogun state motorists.
He said that the deplorable state of the roads had contributed to the carnages on the highways.
“The bad roads damage our vehicles and make us to constantly spend money in repairing them.
“This development also makes our vehicles to be in poor condition and ever in need of repair,’’ he stated.
The NURTW boss, however, urged the Federal Government and states to redouble efforts in fixing bad roads to make them motorable.
He also pleaded to the Federal Road Safety Commission(FRSC), Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps and the police to perform their roles diligently toward making the highways safe for commuters.
