Lawyers under the umbrella of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Ota branch, Ogun state, have issued a 14-day ultimatum to the federal government to fix bad roads within and around the state.

While speaking on the reason for embarking on the protest, Isaac Ogbah, the Ota Branch chairman, said, “Ota is an industrial hub with over 6,000 industries, we should have good roads, even these industries can’t produce anymore because they can’t transport anything.

“We had a meeting on Friday and that was where we resolved to take this action because we can’t even get to courtrooms on time anymore. So many lives have been lost already on these roads, the residents, everyone is suffering

He said the group would move to the next phase of engagement at the end of the 14-day ultimatum.

“We are giving the federal government 14 days to make a specific statement on these roads. After 14 days if we didn’t hear from them, we would move to the next phase.”
