Residents of Kubwa in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have appealed to the Federal Capital Development Administration (FCDA) to rehabilitate the deplorable roads in the area.
They made the appeal in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja.
Mr Charles Nwodo, a civil servant residing in FCDA Quarters, said that the deplorable state of the roads was affecting his car.
He said the situation was adversely affecting him financially as he spent much on regular repairs of his car.
Nwodo added that the bad state of the roads had also made life difficult for other road users in the area.
“Pedestrians are not left out in this situation, as it is difficult for them to move freely by day, let alone in the night,” he said.
A resident who chose to be anonymous said two years back, the residents were assured by the FCDA that the rehabilitation of the roads was included in the budget.
He expressed surprise that up till date, the roads in the area remained in the same sorry state.
Mrs. Mary Mogboh said that besides hindering human and vehicular movement, the deplorable state of the roads posed health challenges to the residents.
She said during the dry season, the dust from the road, when inhaled caused diseases.
“We are appealing to FCDA for a quick solution to this bad state of our roads which has been like this for over 10 years,“ she said.
