Flooding: Bauchi Assembly demands urgent repair of affected roads

Bauchi State House of Assembly, under the leadership of the Speaker, Danlami Ahmed Kawule has called on the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed to act urgently in the repair of roads that were washed away by flood.

Speaking in Bauchi on Wednesday, immediately after the House’s sitting, Abdul Ahmad Burra, the Spokesperson to the Speaker, Bauchi State House of Assembly told DAILY POST that under matters of urgent public importance, the member representing Disina Constituency Hon Saleh Hodi Jibir requested for the emergency maintenance of a road that links Adamami, Disina Jama’are and Itas/Gadau which was affected by flooding.

“According to him, the road is very important to the communities in the area due its economic and social advantages, thus it needs emergency maintenance as it is currently unmotorable,” he said.

He requested that the Honourable House should ask the State Government to act urgently so as to repair the road and put it back to use.

In his contribution, Majority Leader, Hon. Tijjani Muhammad Aliyu (Azare/Madangala Constituency) said that the road needed very urgent and serious consideration.

The Majority Leader added that as representative of the people it’s incumbent on them to raise the matter since it affects their constituents.

He urged the executive arm that since the House had passed the Bauchi State Infrastructural Maintenance Agency Bill into law, the government should inaugurate it and provide funds to enable the agency swing into action.
