Former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has lamented about how tough it is for citizens to move around the country due to the deplorable roads.
Obasanjo stated this on Thursday, October 20, while making a brief comment during a lecture delivered by Chief Mike Ozekhome titled: ‘The Place of Education in a crisis-ridden Nigeria,’ to mark the 10th convocation ceremony of the Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti( ABUAD).
Explaining his lateness to the convocation lecture, the former President said he spent many hours on the road to get to Ado Ekiti, the state capital
“Kindly accept my apologies for coming late to this ceremony. I thought if I leave Abeokuta at 4.30am, I will get to ABUAD at 10am. But when we got to the middle of the journey, the conditions of our roads were bad,” he said.
“We started asking which was the best route to take to get to Ado Ekiti. It was tough before we could get here, kindly pardon me.” he added.
Corroborating Obasanjo’s claim, Ozekhome said it took him about eight hours to get to Ado Ekiti from Abeokuta on Wednesday due to the worsening condition of the roads.
