Transport Minister Amaechi, decries on the number of checkpoints along the Badagry-Seme road


Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has decried the multiple checkpoints along the Badagry-Seme road.

Amaechi made this known in an interview in Lagos on Wednesday.

According to him, before getting to the Nigerian border, one will meet 17 checkpoints including many security agencies.

He said he had to ask at the regional meeting why there were four checkpoints on the way to Togo and Lome and the security officer at Lome apologised, saying they usually had two checkpoints but due to Nigerian elections, they increased the checkpoints to four.

According to him, in Nigeria, election or no election, they saw 17 checkpoints which the government security officers said that they did not know where they came from.

He urged Nigerians to be patient, saying that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had started fixing the Badagry road with the support of two contractors.
