Peter Ayodele Fayose, the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, on Wednesday, called on the Federal Government to repair the road linking Akure in Ondo State with Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti capital.
The former governor, in his statement, made available to newsmen by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, said the road is in a deplorable state and requires urgent attention.
Fayose stressed the importance of the road, noting that the present state of the linking road may affect the economy of the two states.
He appealed to the Minister of Works, Mr Babatunde Fashola, to make frantic effort in fixing the road which is also seen as a death trap for travelers.
“Infomation has it that innocent people who unknowingly ply the road are daily at the mercy of criminals.
“Apart from attacks by criminals, the road is also a death trap for travelers as several lives have been lost in ghastly motor accidents,” Fayose said.
