“During the last administration, the community wrote series of letters, appealing to the government to help us fix the bad road but no positive response came out of it.
“This Governor came on board not up to five months and we are about to get our wish. I can only pray that God will continue to guide his path.
“Lots of accidents had occurred on this road and many motorists in the community have abandoned their cars at home due to the poor condition of the road then”.
In his comment, Alfa Ibrahim Sulaiman, a resident of the area, urged the Governor to continue prioritizing the welfare of the citizens of the state, stating that he has demonstrated to be a listening governor and one who is abreast of the yearnings of the people.
He added that the road when completed will not only reduce accidents in the area but also aid the free movement of residents of the community and its neighbours.
“I just want to urge him (Adeleke) not to relent and continue with the way he is doing. The road after completion will aid free movement of the residents and reduce accidents that have been occurring in this area”, he concluded.
