- Governor Obaseki has been urged to come to the aid of residents of Jagbe
- The community specifically wants the state government to help them dualise their road
- According to a resident of the community, better roads will have economic benefits to their lives
Residents of Jagbe, in Estako West local government area of Edo, have called on the state government to come to the aid of the community over the poor state of the road in the area.
According to Murtala Muhammed, in a message sent to Legit.ng, there is an urgent need for the government to help the community dualise its roads.
He said this will help residents of the community in transporting their agricultural produce to various markets.
Specifically, the community urged Governor Godwin Obaseki to look into the road situation.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported earlier that many bad roads in Nigeria are not the responsibilities of the federal government but those of the states, the minister of finance, budget and national planning, Zainab Ahmed, declared.
Ahmed argued that most of these affected roads belong to the states and not the federal government.
She said N650 billion has been released for capital projects in the 2019 budget as it works to develop the country through the Ministry of Works and Housing.
Legit.ng also reported that following the recent statement by Fashola that roads are not as bad in the country as Nigerians are portraying them, the PDP had 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 an unreserved apology to Nigerians for uttering such statement.
The PDP disclosed this in a statement signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan.
