The Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), has given the Federal Government a one week ultimatum to fix the Bebin-Sapele expressway and the Eku-Agbor road.
The Drivers association bemoaned the terrible state of the road and threatened to withdraw their articulated vehicles from the road if nothing is done to fix them.
While urging Nigerians to join in the call on the Federal Government to fix bad federal roads, Lucky Osesua who is the First Deputy Chairman of the PTD, lamented that petroleum tankers were having a very bitter experience “particularly at the Ologbo portion of the Sapele-Benin expressway with many of them stranded at the spot for as much as five days due to the deplorable state of the road”.
He said, “We have met with the government on the need to fix the bad roads but nothing concrete came out. This is why we had to come out with this ultimatum. If by the end of the week we don’t see workers fixing the road, we will ask our tankers to stop lifting petroleum products.”
