He explained that the essence of the upgrade of the roads was to de-flood the area and address the perennial traffic problems occasioned by the increased commercial outfits in the area.

The commissioner appealed to the public to use the roads in a manner which will extend their lifespan by refraining from dumping of waste into the drains, disposal of oil waste on the roads, cutting of roads and washing of cars on the road.

Hamzat further appealed to the public to imbibe maintenance culture by being the government’s watchdog to apprehend those who willfully damage government property.
