I know that the road are not that bad but I know that this is going to be your headline. Those are the words of the Minister of works, babatunde fashola on the state of roads in Nigeria. The minister of works and housing, babatunde fashola, said that Nigerians roads are not as bad as they are being portrayed.

In its first 2 hours, the poll reached over 18,000 people and 4,633 engagements, 520 comments and 80 shares. Overwhelmingly, Nigerians who reacted to the posts mentioned the deplorable state of roads across the nation, calling the attention of the minister to it. One of vanguard’s top fan on facebook, rotimi adebambo, mentioned lagos badagry express road, lagos Abeokuta, atan agbara road, papalanto sagamu road. Another respondent, Philemon yusuf dasha, asked that ( Did the minister ever went throughkano saminaka ungwan bawa jos road? Because he always travels in an aircraft that is why he is saying all that. Dada babatunde seun listed the roads in numbers.

The minister, babatunde fashola made the statement about Nigerian roads in a chat with state house correspondent at the end of the federal executive cancel (FEC) meeting presided over by the vice president yemi osinbajo at the presidential villar, Abuja. Fashola said FEC approved the contract for the construction of bida sachi nupeko road and the nupeko patigi bridge across river niger, linking nupeko and patigi in Niger state and kwara state at the sun of N58.400 Billion. In a turn of event, Nigerians have flooded the vanguard facebook page to drop their reactions and  share locations of bad roads across the country to counter fashola, the former Lagos state governor. Vanguard had earlier asked Nigerians to name the bad roads they know to counter the minister.

  1. Ibadan to Iwo town to osogbo road
  2. Ibadan to Ife road
  3. Ibadan to Iseyi to shaki road.

Another top fan, Lukeson Oguchi Luke, identified egbema omoku ahoada road to the baddest of all roads in the world. Okon Nsabasi sarcastically said that the roads are not bad, they don’t exist anymore   For examply, Calabar to Iyo he said, Hon Minister, please don’t come here to offend anyone, just fnish your term and go. Musa Aminu challenged Fashona saying that the roads are very bad.

Oya carry your car and come to agege motor road in your own Lagos state. Idi oro mushin lagos, he said in pigin English. Another respondent emeka idimogu said; almost 400 comments listing bad road, how many road are good? That means almost all the road are bad and the minister is not aware of it, you have seen why this man cannot give you good road in his tenure? Ikechukwu eziedo reserves hisrespect for fashola and said; I wonder why someone I respect so much like fashola will be talking like this. Because you are in Abuja where you have good road network. Oya go to Egunu Onitsha expressway and you are right or wrong. Opara Babatunde used the medium to send message to the Governor saying “Please sir, come and save Kajola, Iseyin, Iwajowa Local Government Area, the roads are bad.
