“The NMA remains as worried as ever regarding the state of our dear country as evidenced by the deplorable conditions of infrastructure and amenities such as bad roads, lack of portable water, poor state of medical facilities, lack of uninterrupted power supply, unavailability of decent and affordable homes, poor drainage system, environmental pollution and poorly developed transportation system amidst other social, political and economic challenges faced by Nigerians on a daily basis,” Ojo said.
