We the undersigned Residents, stake holders and indigenous people of Ekpoma in Esan West Local Government Area of Edo State, write to bring to your attention to the un-motorable and most deplorable condition of all the roads in Ekpoma- the administrative head and a major town in Esan West Local Government Area, Edo state.

We refer you to the major roads such as Ujoelen road, Ihumudumu-Ujemen road, Ukpenu-market square road, Eguare-Ebhoakhuala road, amongst many others. These roads have remained in a deplorable state for years and are presently totally deteriorated and un-motorable for Residents, businesses, stakeholders and indigenous people of Ekpoma in Esan West Local Government.

The condition of these roads have led to untold suffering and hardship for residents and all who conduct business in this town. It is on record that some businesses have closed shop and the cost of goods and services are rising to unbearable levels due to the attendant hike in cost of transportation of same. These bad roads are gradually turning to hot spots for criminal elements who take advantage of the situation to way lay unsuspecting road users. The local government appears helpless in the face of all these. Your excellency, life is becoming hard and difficult for your citizens here. We feel abandoned and the discontent is growing.

Consider that the only Federal highway that connects this part to the rest of the country is currently unmotorable with traffic gridlock of unimaginable proportions lasting days on some occasions. This has led to road users finding other routes through our towns and villages thus piling pressure on local roads which are not designed to bear such volume traffic and destroying them in the process. A journey to Benin from Ekpoma which hitherto was 45 minutes now takes as much as 3 hours on a good day.

We are dissatisfied at the seeming neglect of our roads and our plight by all levels of Government and as such hereby petition your Government to address this situation with immediate attention and rehabilitation of these roads. Yours has been so far, a visionary and pragmatic administration and we want to see that extended to the resolution of this situation.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully.
