The Executive Chairman of Oyo East Local Government Area, Prince Saheed Arowosaye has called on the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) to fix the dilapidated portions of the Ogbomosho- Oyo old federal Highway.
Arowosaye made the appeal on Wednesday in Oyo town during a visit to the highway.
He said the busy highway has become a deathtrap and called for urgent action to prevent needless lost of lives on the road.
“This road has become a deathtrap for my people in the local government. I want to use this opportunity to call on FERMA to please intervene and fix the road. As a local government, there is little we can do to remedy the situation. Apart from temporarily filling the numerous potholes, we cannot do much”.
He therefore appealed to the Federal agency to listen to the pleas of residents and commuters on the highway.
“FERMA should listen to our pleas and fix the road to save the lives of my people and other road users. This is a highway with heavy vehicular traffic especially trucks on daily basis and its condition is disheartening” he said.340 Post Views
