Babatunde Fashola

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has summoned the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN) over the alleged abandonment of a road in Benue State.

He is to appear before the commission on June 29 to explain why the federal government allegedly abandoned the Makurdi-Gboko Federal Highway in violation of the rights of the people of Mbayion District of Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State.

Leader of the traditional rulers from the area, Mr Pius Anga says the deplorable nature of the Makurdi-Gboko Federal Highway has become a death trap to motorists plying the route, resulting in many road accidents that have caused the death of some important Nigerians.

Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Bem Angwe, issued the summons in Abuja following a petition submitted by traditional rulers from Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State.
