Also under matters of urgent public importance, the member representing Disina Constituency, Saleh Hodi Jibir requested the emergency maintenance of a road that links Adamami, Disina, Jama’are and Itas/Gadau which is affected by flooding.
According to him, the road is very important to the communities in the area due its economic and social advantages, thus it needs emergency maintenance as it is currently unmotorable.
He requested that the House should ask the State Government to act urgently so as to repair the road and put it back to use for the benefit of the people of the area.
In his contribution, Majority Leader, Tijjani Muhammad Aliyu representing Azare/Madangala Constituency said that the road needs very urgent and serious consideration adding that the problem of flooding that is affecting roads is a global phenomenon, and affects all other parts of the nation
The Majority Leader added that as representatives of the people, it is incumbent on them to raise the matter since it affects their constituents.
He urged the Executive Arm that since the House has passed Bauchi State Infrastructural Maintenance Agency, the government should inaugurate it and provide funding for the Agency so that it can swing into action.
However, the Majority Leader lamented that he has been raising similar issues but nothing has been done, hoping that with the coming of this Agency, it can assuage this kind of problem after which the House adopted the motion.
