Former State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Tunji Shelle, has described the construction of the Lagos-Calabar Coastal road project as a misplaced priority.

The retired Navy captain said that all the roads that farmers would use to bring their farm produce out to the people have been abandoned, yet the government is spending so much money to open up new ones.

He said, “To me, it is just a misplaced priority. How can you just wake up and say you are building coastal roads and they are starting from the Atlantic area in Lagos? What about all the inner roads that are in bad condition? All the roads that the farmers will use to bring farm produce to the people have been abandoned, yet they are opening new ones and spending a huge amount of money, N2.8 trillion to construct them.”

Shelle added that he is currently in America, and that he has been looking for a road that has not been tarred, yet he has not seen any. He said that in America, instead of the government allowing the existing roads to deteriorate, what they do is upgrade and improve on their conditions.

He added, “We need to know, at what cost is this project being executed? Who is paying? Initially, they said the contractor would finance the project, now they are using government money. If care is not taken, the project will be abandoned midway. The government should be sensitive to the plight of Nigerians, and they should learn to give priority to important things.”
