BREAKING: Senate seeks N300bn to fix roads in Niger

The Senate on Tuesday urged the Federal Government to provide N300billion as emergency intervention funds to rehabilitate deplorable roads in Niger State.

The resolution of the Upper Chamber followed a motion on the dilapidated state of roads across Niger State and the blocking of the roads by protesting trailer and tanker drivers in the last four days.

The motion was moved by the Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abudullahi, who represents Niger North.

In his contribution, Senator Mohammed Sani Musa, accused the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, of bias in his attitude to road construction and repairs in Niger State.
