Concerned groups protest about bad roads
Jethro Ibileke/Benin A coalition of civil society and other groups, under the aegis of Ekpoma Concerned Stakeholders Forum, Thursday protested the deplorable state of the Expoma axis of Benin-Auchi-Okene highway and other roads within the Esan West local government area of Edo State. The Forum, made up of members of Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) Senior Staff Association of Nigerian University (SSANU) National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), private legal practitioners and indigienes of the community, blocked the highway, just as they called on the federal and state governments to fix the failed portions of the highway and other roads within the local government area. Spokesperson for the Forum, Mr Monday Igbafe, who is the Chairman of ASUU, Ambrose Alli University (AAU) branch, said the failed portion of the Ekpoma axis of the highway has become a source of nightmare to residents and motorists in the area.
