The member representing Bassa constituency in the Kogi State House of Assembly Hon. Sunday Shigaba has bemoaned the dangerous state of Bassa roads saying “it gives me sleepless nights”.
Hon. Shigaba who passed through the long neglected Odenyi – Oguma – Ikende road for a burial ceremony of one of the matriarch in Bassa said, he has presented bills on the floor of the House on the bad state of the road.
The law maker noted that the state of the road has worsened this year as all the dilapidated bridges on the road were all washed away by a recent heavy down pour. He added that farmers could no longer transport their farm produce to big cities due to the bad nature of the road.
Hon Shigaba appealed to Governor Idris Wada to use part of the twenty billion naira been accessed from the capital market to construct the road stressing that the people of Bassa Kwomu district had suffered enough.The law maker said Bassa Kwomu district has remained the only Area in the state which has not witnessed any meaningful development in the last thirty years.
He said the development is very unhealthy for his people whom he described as “very hard working”Hon. Shigaba said he would continue to lobby for the construction of the road maintaining that his people will also continue to look up to Capt. Wada led administration until the road is constructed.
