we have state roads that need fixing such as the Ekehuan Road, among others.
Governor Obaseki has been calling on the Federal Government to help fix the federal roads in the state, including Benin-Abraka Road and the Benin Auchi Road, where our lawmaker almost died, as well as the Benin-Sapele Road and the Benin-Lagos Road at the Ovia River bridge but the calls fell on deaf ears as the Federal Government has not listened and there is no guarantee that they will act.”
