House of Representatives has disclosed that the lower arm of the National Assembly will hold public hearing on the collapse of the nation’s roads.

Chairman, House Committee on Works, Honourable Ogbuefi Ozombachi, stated this at the inauguration of Mustafa Balarabe Shehu as the 28th president of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE, in Abuja yesterday.

He said, “We are going to hold public hearing soon on the collapse of Nigerian roads.

”So we need your inputs so as to make appropriate laws. We are waiting to get the result of your many researches and advice on how we can finally revamp our infrastructure”

Ozombachi said that the nation engineers should be ashamed over the state of Nigerian roads.  ”I am sure you all must feel ashamed and guilty whenever you see the things that pass for our roads in this country or whenever you hear about another building collapse”, he said.

”Every aspect of our transport system falls short of all reasonable expectation. Our roads have become death traps abd valuable lives are lost daily in fatal accidents.
