Ondo Senator Laments Bad Condition Of FG Roads

The senator representing Ondo South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Nicholas Tofowomo, has called on the Federal Road Maintenance Agency, to urgently repair all the bad portions of federal roads in the state.

Tofowomo, who lamented the poor condition of the federal roads in the state, said there was a need for urgent action from FERMA as he said bad roads are responsible for most of the road accidents that occur in the state.

The senator, who is the vice chairman of the Senate Committee on Land Transport, stated this on Monday, in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Olumide Akinrinlola.

According to him, the road repair needed to be done urgently by FERMA, as the festive season is around the corner and people would be traveling by road.
He said, “Most of the accidents in Ondo State are due to bad portions of the federal roads across state. Many lives have been claimed by bad portions of federal roads, especially on Okitipupa-Ore road in Ondo State.

“Now Christmas is near, I am calling on FERMA to fix all the bad portions of the federal roads across the state most especially that of Ore-Okitipupa which is currently in abysmal condition.

“All the roads must be fixed within a short period especially now that we are approaching the festive period.”
