Mr Abraham Suyi, the President, Agbede Community Development, has appealed to the Federal Government to speed up the ongoing construction of the Obajana-kabba road in Kogi state.
Suyi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lokoja on Saturday that the completion of the road project was long over-due.
He stated that the delay in the completion of the project has paralysed economic activities in the area as vehicular movement has drastically reduced since the construction work started.
He, therefore, appealed to the federal and state governments to compel the contractor handling the project to expedite action so that normalcy could be restored in the area.
Suyi applauded the Federal Government for awarding the contract, saying it would go a long way toward making life easier for the communities as well as boost economic activities in the area.
He urged residents to be patient and to remain calm pending the completion of the project. (NAN
