Reasons why Niger State is rehabilitating roads- Sen.Sahabi

By BASHIR BELLO, Abuja Senator Abdullahi Aliyu Sabi representing Niger North at the 9th Assembly has been speaking on the recent crisis that  rendered some federal roads impassable in his state. Senator Sabi revealed that the origin of the impasse originated from Bida - Minna highway. The Senator revealed that the Bida- Minna way was in a very bad state which led to the state government undertaking the reconstruction of the route. "As a result, the Bida- Minna express way was blocked to prevent  trucks from plying it. "The deplorable state of the road led to the State Government obtaining  a loan from the World Bank under the Rural Access Road Loan  to fix the road. However, truck and trailer drivers got infuriated and blocked other roads. "Nonetheless, by Thursday last week, the truck and trailer drivers reached an agreement with the State Government and removed the blockade so that other commuters could move freely, the Law Maker Futher explained.

What is in your head is always more important than what is on your leg. The same Bambiala has 10 Presidential jets. How many jets does the Queen of The Netherlands, that he was begging for money, last week have? Beggar from top to bottom. Tueh!

The only time they meet is when discussing Social Media Bill or Presidency.  We have 19 Northern States. Out of that 19, only 2 are viable. Kano, maybe Kaduna. The rest are over glorified States who's main idea of  States is Federal Allocation.  This jokers did not meet to end banditry, nor did they meet to end terrorism, let alone talk economic growth and how to foster development across the regions.  But these howlers will come and be threaten everyone how power must remain in the North.
