He warned that NUPENG would suspend loading of fuel for Lagos and Ogun consumers as well as adjourning states in the Southwest, if the poor state of the road persists.
Speaking on the state of the road, according to Businessday the NUPENG leader in the South West said “the state of Sagamu-Ikorodu road is in a very bad shape and very sympathetic. This is where Nigerian government is getting volume of money from Mosimi depot, and the road that is doing that is not well rehabilitated.”
