Expert wants government to prioritise road repair, power supply
Director of Poly Products in Lagos State, Mr. Pavan Gwalani, has urged the government at all levels to prioritise roads repair and improve power supply in the New Year to reduce time wasted in traffic gridlock.
Gwalani made the call yesterday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, saying that the conditions of roads and the power situation in the country have greatly affected the productivity of the people.
He stated that the most important resource any government could have was its people and their state of mind, adding that the situation around them and their happiness largely affect their level of productivity at work.
“Businesses have been able to generate their power, which is okay, but consideration must be given to citizens, as they are the ones that need it most.
“It takes some persons an average of two to four hours to get to work and back home due to the state of our roads. This has greatly reduced the time parents spend guiding their children and this had let to a disjointed society.
“Also, a large amount of productivity is lost from the time spent on the road, and we also have the health aspect of it to address. Without proper power generation, children cannot study and this is affecting the next generation,” he said.
