The newly appointed minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, has revealed his agenda concerning road safety.

Speaking at his maiden press briefing in Abuja, he made the following promise concerning road safety and traffic.

“In order to make the roads safer, we intend to re-claim the full width and set back of all Federal roads, representing 16% and about 36,000km of Nigeria’s road network by immediately now asking all those who are infringing on our highways, whether by parking, trading, or erection of any inappropriate structure to immediately remove, relocate or dismantle such things voluntarily. This will be the biggest contribution that citizens can offer our country as proof that we all want things to change for the better.”

Do you think Babatunde Fashola can deliver on his promise to keep Nigerian roads safer and traffic free?
