Jebba-Mokwa road a national disaster – Funke Adedoyin

The Deputy Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on the Army, Funke Adedoyin, has described the Jebba-Mokwa Road as a national disaster.

Ms. Adedoyin said the road needed urgent reconstruction.

Ms. Adedoyin said this in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on Wednesday (last week) when she led a delegation of the Committee on the Army on a courtesy call on the Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, at the Government House.

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.

Ms. 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 lawmaker 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.

Responding, Governor Ahmed said he had made several presentations at the National Economic Council and other fora on the need for reconstruction of the Jebba-Mokwa Road.

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

He said the nation must tackle its security challenges in parts of the country.

The governor 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.
