The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Kwara and the Bodesaadu community, near Jebba, have commended President Muhammadu Buhari over his administration’s giant strides in infrastructure development.
Mr Oluwabunmi Babatunde, the NURTW Chairman in Shao, Moro Local Government Area of Kwara, Friday in Shao said the Buhari administration’s intervention on road projects across the country was unprecedented.
Babatunde spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) during the inspection of completed 83.6 km Ilorin-Jebba-Mokwa road construction and rehabilitation project.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, carried out the road inspection with a team of newsmen.
“Before this road was rehabilitated, many lives had been lost and unquantifiable property destroyed through recurrent fatal accidents,” he said. (NAN)
“Now that we are approaching the Sallah, if it were to be before that the road was bad, we would have recorded calamities.”
Another member of the union, Afeez Akanbi also thanked the government for completing the road project and appealed for construction of speed bumps at the Shao junction of the road to prevent accident and killing of pedestrians.
NAN reports that the Kwara State University Campus is located a few distance across the junction and many students do cross the road. (NAN)
