I was misquoted on state of Nigerian roads – Fashola
Minister for Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has stated that he was misquoted on his statement on Nigerian roads.
The former governor of Lagos State was quoted by reports to have said that citizens exaggerate the state of Nigerian roads to look bad.
During the inauguration of some roads in Ilara- Mokin, Ifedore local government area of Ondo state, which are financed by Michael Ade-Ojo, chairman of Toyota Nigeria Limited, Fashola stated that he was misquoted.
“Let me start from the journey by roads to the 36 states, 12 hours everyday, so I know what I saw, and I also said what I wanted to say in that press conference, and thankfully, I must thank your TV Channels, at least, showing the maturity and the professionalism responsibility to play the whole tape, so people can see the context of what I said,” he said.
“I didn’t use the word ‘exaggerated’, I didn’t say that. Please go and listen to what I said, thank you.”
Fahsola added that states who rehabilitate Federal Government roads will not be refunded.
