- The PDP has demanded the resignation of Babatunde Fashola
- Also, the PDP asked the minister to apologise to Nigerians over his controversial statement
- According to PDP, travelling Nigerian roads is one of the highest life threatening experiences in the country
Following the recent statement by minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, that roads are not as bad in the country as Nigerians are portraying them the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has on Friday, November 8, called on the former governor of Lagos state to resign immediately.
Apart from this, the opposition party also urged the minister to tender unreserved apology to Nigerians for uttering such statement.
The PDP disclosed this in a statement signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, and obtained by Legit.ng.
According to PDP, Fashola's statement is an assault on the sensibility of over 200 million Nigerians.
The party said the minister ought to be apologetic for the terrible state of roads across the country since the last four years he has been minister.
PDP added that travelling Nigerian roads apart from being traumatizing, is one of the highest life threatening experiences in the country.
Meanwhile, recall that Legit.ng had reported that majority of Nigerians faulted the claim by Fashola that Nigerian roads are not as bad as some citizens are now painting the picture.
Two recent polls conducted by Legit.ng on Twitter and on Facebook showed that a high number of Nigerians were of the view that Fashola’s comments were far from reality on ground.
