The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has incurred the wrath of some Nigerians for saying that reports on the state of the nation’s roads were exaggerated.

Fashola stated this while speaking to newsmen shortly after Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“The roads are not as bad as they are often portrayed. I know that this is going to be your headline, but the roads are not that bad,” The Punch quoted the former Lagos State Governor as telling State House correspondents.

But many Nigerians took to social media to disagree with the minister, saying the roads are as bad as reported.
