Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has visited the Honourable Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola to draw the Federal Government’s attention to the deplorable condition of Federal roads in Kogi and the need for urgent repairs

The governor’s visit came at the wake of a fatal road accident involving a tanker and other vehicles on the Okene/Lokoja/Abuja road that resulted in an explosion which claimed 23 lives in the Felele area of Lokoja on Wednesday.

The Governor told the minister that the deplorable state of all federal roads across the state have led to recurrent accidents in the state.

He said the State Government has done a lot in maintaining the roads but owing to the large volume of traffic on the roads, in view of its strategic location as gateway state, such repairs and maintenance do not stand the test of time.
