Pastor E. A Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, on Sunday, reacted to the statement credited to the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola, that Nigerian roads are not too bad.
The former Governor of Lagos State had earlier stated that Nigerian roads are not as bad as being portrayed.
Fashola while addressing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting said, “The roads are not as bad as they are often portrayed. I know that this is going to be your headline, but the roads are not that bad.”
Pastor Adeboye on Sunday said, “I travel a lot on Nigerian roads and when I travel by road particularly, I understand when someone says the roads are not completely bad.”
“I understand that it is a true statement because the roads are not just very bad; they do not exist anymore. It is a road that exists that can be classified as very bad.”
“I have travelled within towns and distances that I used to cover within 15 minutes now take up to an hour. Our stagnation must come to an end.”
