The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the Minister for Housing and Works, Babatunde Fashola, to resign from his position after he allegedly made a comment on the state of Nigerian roads.
The party also demanded an apology from the minister to Nigerians over his “unpardonable comment” which was made through his spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiya.
Ologbondiya made the comment at a press conference on November 7, where he stated that most Nigerian roads are not as bad as Nigerians portray them to be.
The comment has left members of the PDP in rage, with many saying the minister ought to be apologetic for the decrepit state of roads across the country since he became a minister four years ago.
The PDP recalled that Fashola noted, during his campaign in 2015, that any serious government will fix power within six months, yet he has been unable to achieve this feat as the minister supervising power.
