A Non- Governmental Organization, Centre for Peace and Environmental Justice (CEPEJ), has decried the sufferings of Nigerians who ply the road and the loss of man hour, the economic losses to Federal and State governments, as well as to private and corporate individuals.
CEPEJ’s, National Coordinator, Comrade Sheriff Mulade, who spoke in Warri on Tuesday in his office, said the Warri Benin federal high way does not need parliative measure or rehabilitation but a full scale reconstruction for Nigerians to ply, stressing that the road needs to be excavated to the soil base and refilled with sharp stand to make it solid.
According to Comrade Mulade, who visited the site with CEPEJ team, the best way of intervention by the Federal Government, to free Nigerians from the sufferings on the road is to reconstruct the road.
The NGO Coordinator expressed worry over the worsening situation of the road, as Nigerians struggle to use the road irrespective of where they are heading to, some citizens with several health conditions.
Comrade Mulade, therefore urged the Federal Government to look into the very bad road condition, stating that it does not just affect Deltans alone, but also all Nigerians that ply the road.
Comrade Sheriff, also urged the Federal Government to start work in earnest by taking care of federal roads because it is extending very deep into other state and street roads, and the earlier the road is re-constructed the better for Nigerians and the economy of both State and Federal Governments.
