. Says road is now death-trap, desolate
By Valentine Amanze

The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to fix the road linking Akure, Ondo State with
Ado Ekiti in Ekiti State.
"The road is now in such a deplorable state that motorists now avoid it," Fayose said.
He pointed out the road was too important to the economy of Ondo and Ekiti states as well as the well-being of the people of the states to be neglected completely by the Federal Government.
According to his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, the former governor, spoke at the Akure Airport on Sunday.
He said that the road had become a source of severe hardship for Nigerians, especially the people of Ekiti State who are its major users.

He appealed to the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola, to ensure that the road gets the required attention, noting, "In the last one year, the road has become so bad that only people who are unmindful of its deplorable nature use it."
Fayose said, "Info 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 travellers as several lives have been lost in ghastly motor accidents.
"The federal government should therefore see to the fixing of the road so as to alleviate the suffering of commuters and restore the dead commercial activities in towns and villages along the road."
