Omoyele Sowore, African Action Congress (AAC) presidential aspirant has said Lagos-Badagry expressway as the worst road in Nigeria.
This he said while speaking at a town hall meeting organised by the party in Badagry.
Sowore noted that Badagry, although an historic town has been cut from other parts of the country due to the bad state of the road
“I have traveled all over Nigeria, but I have not seen any international expressway like Lagos-Badagry.
“We spent almost five hours coming here instead of one and half hours.
“Badagry town has been cut-off from Nigeria due to deplorable state of the road.
“This is very shameful,” the presidential aspirant said.
Sowore promised that two expressways would be constructed from Badagry to Lagos, and another one linking Badagry and Ogun State if elected into power in the 2019 general elections.
He recalled that about 400 years aao, 43 million people where sold into slavery in the coastal city.
“Nigerians are indirectly going into slavery by traveling to different countries looking for jobs.
“I am in politics to stop this by providing 500,000 jobs yearly.
“The minimum wage for civil servant will be N100,000 from 2019,” he said.
Sowore urged the residents of Badagry to vote wisely for candidates of their choice.
“I heard now that politicians are buying Permanent Voters Card (PVC) for N10,000. Please dont sell your PVC, the PVC is your future.
“Can you do any business with N10,000? they will buy your card; Your future is your PVC; keep it,” he said.
