Hon. Adedoyin decries Jebba-Mokwa road, says its a national disaster

The Deputy Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on the Army, Hon. Funke Adedoyin, has decried the state of the Jebba-Mokwa Road, describing it as a national disaster, ITRealms reports.

Speaking in Ilorin, capital of Kwara State on Wednesday, when she led a delegation of the Committee on the Army on a courtesy visit to the State Governor, Dr. Abdulfatah Ahmed, at the Government House, Hon. Adedoyin said the road requires an urgent reconstruction.

The federal lawmaker said the deplorable state of the road had caused loss of lives and properties as it is a major link road between the Northern and Southern parts of the country.

Princess Adedoyin promised to liaise with the House of Representatives Committee on Works on how to ensure that the road receives urgent Federal Government attention to halt carnage on it.
The House Committee Deputy Chair commended the state government for what she called the excellent relationship between it and the Army and other security forces.

She said the 22 Armoured Brigade Cantonment at Sobi in Ilorin occupies a strategic position in its operations, which covers Kwara State and parts of the neighbouring state of Niger.

Gov. Ahmed in his response, said he had made several presentations at the National Economic Council and other fora of the Federal Government on the need for reconstruction of the Jebba-Mokwa Road.

Ahmed promised greater partnership with the Nigeria Army and other security agencies on security in the state. 

Further, he said the nation must tackle its security challenges in parts of the country and commended the members of the House of Representatives on the Army for their active disposition to the promotion of the welfare of the Nigerian Army.
