Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Tuesday blamed the administration of Goodluck Jonathan for the sorry state of Benin-Ekpoma-Auchi-Okene highway.
He spoke when the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN) visited him in his office at the Government House, Benin.
“Right now, I have difficulty going home to my village because of what your predecessor did”, Vanguard quoted him as saying.
“I have tried to explain it and it is important we explain it, not because anybody believes in what they call blame game, but the truth is that if the road wasn’t touched at all, it would have been better than it is now.
“I did argue then that what they were doing was going to create more problems. The truth is that they have left the road worse off than it was before the haphazard dualisation which is now creating a lot of problems”, he said.
Oshiomhole added that: “If our people found out that I didn’t talk about the road, they would think I am not taking advantage of my privileged relationship with you”.
