Federal roads and their maintenance have always been a priority of the Government which is why the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of WorksandHousing, Babangida Hussaini, has called on the Nigerian public to ensure that Government utilities across the nation are kept in good condition.
The Permanent Secretary strongly warned public members about any activity that will cause damage to our roads, reminding them that Government will not hesitate to take the entire course of the law against violators.
Hussaini’s warning came in reaction to a portion of the road shoulders on Kano Western bypass damaged during the construction of a filling station by one Alhaji Sabi’u Farinwata, whom Hussaini had given a stern warning and instructions to refix the damaged portions to standard as specified by his ministry.
The Permanent Secretary reminded the general public of the mandate of the Honourable Minister of Works and Housing in ensuring that all federal roads across the country are maintained and kept in reasonable condition to last their lifespan.
He urged Nigerians to support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in its efforts at providing good road infrastructure across the country for the benefit of Nigerians.
