The Federal Government has directed emergency repairs on sections of roads where failure had occurred due to flooding caused by heavy rainfall in five states across the country.
Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, disclosed this during a media briefing in Abuja on Tuesday.
The roads for repairs include: Gombe – Bauchi road; Gombe – Darazo; Bauchi – Ningi, Bida – Lambata, Tsamiya bridge in Jigawa State, and Ibadan – Ife road.
Fashola said the government would give continuous attention to other roads with similar problems, adding that it is committed to infrastructure development and will respond promptly to complaints
He, however, appealed to commuters to be patient with the government as the excessive rains being witnessed has a negative effect on road construction and rehabilitation.
