The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, has said that road construction in the country is carried out based on universal global standard, a statement that has not gone down well with Nigerians.
He said this while speaking on Tuesday in Abuja on the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari administration in the transport sector.
“I think we don’t have our standards, roads are constructed to a universal global standard and those standards are not made by Nigeria, they are uniform standards. You can have a minimum and a maximum, in many cases we have reached some maximum because of the quality of finishing they have applied,’’ he said.
As expected many Nigerians have taken to social media to the Minister.
