The first Deputy National Chairman of PTD, Lucky Osesua, who spoke in Warri, Delta State, yesterday, urged Nigerians to rally behind the call on the Federal Government to fix bad federal roads.
Further stating that, petroleum tankers have a tumultuous time when journeying alongthe Ologbo portion of the Sapele -Benin express road with many of them stranded at the spot for almost five days due to the dilapidated state of the road.
The PTD would not hesitate to withdraw their tankers from the road if the government do not to move in to start repair work on the road  and other similar roads. Their demands are to be taken seriously Osesua said
 “We are here today to give the government one week ultimatum to begin work on the bad express roads here. Our tankers are trapped for days at the bad spots. It is very dangerous for trailers with petroleum products to be struggling through bad roads. We all know the implication of this for other motorists and road users. “
“We have met with government on the need to fix the bad roads but nothing concrete came out. This is why we had to come out with this ultimatum. If by the end of the week we don’t see workers fixing the roads, we will ask our tankers to stop lifting of Petroleum product,” he said
The PTD Deputy National chairman raised significant concern with regards to the deplorable condition of roads oil tankers have no choice but to take, being the only route. This could result in accidents and loss of lives, he capped off
