The Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said that our roads are not as bad as they are portrayed, and, well, Nigerians are not having it.

Punch reports that Fashola made this comment shortly after the Federal Executive Council meeting, where ₦58.4billion was approved for the construction of Bida-Sachi-Nupeko road and the Nupeko-Patigi Bridge across River Niger, linking Nupeko and Patigi in Niger and Kwara states.

“The roads are not as bad as they are often portrayed.” the minister said. “I know that this is going to be your headline, but the roads are not that bad”

Well, Nigerians disagree.

Twitter users have begun to share photos of the very many bad roads across the country, imploring the former Lagos State governor to take a road trip.

I bet Fashola to take Lagos to Ilorin road in a public transport. That time we will know if Nigeria road is bad or not

How will he know if the roads are bad, they said, if his primary route of Lagos to Abuja is plied through the air?

How is he supposed to know? Does he ply any of those roads? His primary route which is Lag-Abj, he does via air, so what is he talking about.
Fashola has now developed a reputation for talking nonsense and outright rubbish all the time.
