POOR CONDITION OF ROADS IN NIGERIA
« on: June 05, 2013, 12:14 PM »
Nigeria as we know is termed the giant of Africa and as such should appear as one, but the reverse is the case. In terms of the road network, Nigeria is ranking one of the worst among all the neighboring countries. Poor funding and maintenance are major contributors to this problem.

You can hardly go a mile without seeing numerous potholes. This has contributed immensely to the high rate of accidents we encounter on Nigerian roads. Despite the $1billion allocation for repairing transport infrastructure planned by the Nigerian government in 2010, we have not seen any reasonable change on the Nigerian road network and this has added to high transport costs, as motorists find it hard to access some major business areas.

Apart from the issue of bad roads, it has also been noticed that the Nigerian Road Network lacks the use of road signs, traffic lights etc. Overloaded vehicles is another major contributor of the bad roads we have in Nigeria, as some of the roads were not built to withstand such weights. Another contributing factor to the bad roads we have in Nigeria is that the contractors who were awarded the contracts sometimes construct bad roads and embezzle the rest of the money for their own selfish desires.

All this and many more reasons are the cause of the problems we face on Nigerian roads and must be put to a halt before it gets out of hand. Enough is enough, the government must wake up to their responsibilities.
