The House of Representatives on Thursday adopted a motion seeking immediate repairs of the express way from Abuja to Kano.
Member representing Dala Federal Constituency of Kano State, Aliyu Madaki who sponsored a motion of urgent national importance, noted that the express road has become a hub for various criminal activities due to its deteriorating nature.
“The Kano – Abuja road has become a death trap, with incessant cases of kidnap and armed robbery. This is because the road is very bad”, he said.
Chairman, House committee on works, Hon. Jerry Alagbaoso in his contribution, noted that adequate budgetary allocations made for the road in the 2016 budget.
He assured that repairs would commence on the road soon.
“A lot of money is budgeted on that road in the 2016 Budget, the work will commence very soon,” he said.
