The national president of the IEYDA, Alhaji Babatunde Salaudeen made the call Tuesday when he led other members of the association to barricade the damaged portions of the road.

Salaudeen said the appeal would ensure the safety of the citizens plying the road.

He urged the Federal Ministry of Works and Transport and the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) to urgently come to the aid of motorists and passenger to fix the bad portions.
