Some people joined the NLC members on Oct 27 2021 in demanding that the Ogun State government and the federal government to fix the express-way road immediately.
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) in Ogun State halted the Sango-Ota portion of the famed Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway on Wednesday 27th in protest of bad roads.
According to reports, demonstrators had took to the streets on October 6 being 3 weeks from today to demand that the government fix the problematic parts of the express-way road. If nothing was done within 21 days, they threatened to close the road temporarily.
When the ultimatum expired being today 27th Oct and the road was still in bad shape as before, the protesters mobilized and blocked the major highway road, creating inconvenience to the road users who were also trapped.
“Enough of bad governance,” “Dapo Abiodun, let us enjoy the dividends of democracy in Ogun,” “Dapo, this suffering is too much,” “Hear our cries, Ogun people are suffering,” “Dapo, repair our roads, it is our right,” and other slogans were carried by the demonstrators.
Bankole has said, “21 days ago, we were here. We gave an ultimatum to the government that we are not pleased with the state of the roads; particularly the Minister of Works coming here to promise that palliative works will commence immediately and several weeks after nothing was done. That was why the 21 days ultimatum was given.
“Interestingly, a few days ago, they started some works. We can see some loads of granites by the State Government. But this is not yet what we asked for. The Minister was here and he promised to commence immediate palliative, which is yet to happen.
“As such, Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, for coming to lie to the citizens of Ogun State, he is being declared ‘persona non grata’ in Ogun State. We are declaring him an enemy of Ogun State. We don’t want to see him in Ogun State for coming to fool and deceive us that palliative works will commence and nothing was done.
“We saw what is in the ground which is the effort of the State Government. The Federal Government cannot be collecting all the money and be inflicting pain on us. That’s why we are here to make the statement loud and clear that Babatunde Raji Fashola, the Ministry of Works and also the FERMA in Ogun State are being declared persona non grata.
When we leave this place, we are going to the FERMA’s office in Abeokuta and also Ministry of Works to send message to their headquarter in Abuja that we are not pleased with what they are doing
