Dr Ehanire said the issue of the deplorable road has been discussed with the minister of Power, Works and Housing adding that after the rains work will commence.

According to him, “I have discussed the issue of the road with the Minister and he also agreed that it is a death trap, so he has assured us that after the rains there will be a lot of emphasis on that road, I take that road too and I have given a clear picture of how that road is to him”.
