We’re Going Through Hell On Niger Roads, Bello Tells Buhari
Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello, on Friday, decried the deplorable conditions of roads in the state, adding that motorists and commuters were going through hell plying the roads. Bello said the state government would close down the Minna-Bida Road to articulated vehicles as nothing had yet to be done two weeks after the state and federal government’s agreed in a meeting to provide immediate emergency interventions, according to the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor. The Governor also lamented that over 150 communities had been submerged by water, while the popular Sunti Sugar Farm had been destroyed by flood.” At the moment, we are facing difficult times because the rains are quite heavy. Most sections of the roads have failed completely and there is need to have some quick intervention to ease the difficulties experienced by motorists in highways. So, i took time to brief Mr President on what is happening and what i think can be done in the interim to address some of these issues.
