Fashola to Appear Before House of Reps Over Reconstruction of Roads
House of Reps Summon Raji Fashola
The House of Representatives has summoned the Minister of Power, works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola over failure to reconstruct roads and bridges in Borno state.
The summon bordered on the failure of a contractor to reconstruct the Mararaba-Mubi-Michika-Madagali-Gwoza road and three bridges at Kudzum, Delchimi and Wurogyande broken by Boko Haram.
Kamale informed the House of the dilemma the people of the community go through as a result of bad roads, adding that the wooden makeshift bridge at Kudzum had broken down.
Kamale also explained that road users from Yola are now compelled to go through Mubi town and the bypass to access Michika/Madagali federal constituency, making journey along the route inconvenient.
He also asked that the house direct the committee on works to invite Fashola to explain the state of the contract, particularly why the three broken bridges destroyed by Boko Haram insurgent have not been rehabilitated.
The committee has been mandated to look into the circumstances leading to the award of the contract, the capacity of the contractor, mobilisation already made available and other information that that may necessitate the revocation and re-awarding of the contract for proper execution.
