As Muslims celebrate Eid el-Fitr on Tuesday, some residents of Kaduna have urged the state government to construct more roads and stronger sense of security.

Malam Usman Tanko, a businessman, urged the government to address the issue of kidnapping, which has instilled fear in the minds of people.
Shehu Baba, another resident, expressed the hope that the sacrificial spirit of Eid el-Fitr would impact the lives of the people and help bring about peace and unity in the country in spite the diversity of its people.
Mr Francis Eze, a resident, spoke of the need for the government to be more committed to securing the lives and property of the people.

On her own part, Hajiya Aisha Mohammed, a civil servant called on the government to construct and renovate roads, especially in the metropolis for more vehicular movements and economy growth.
