While calling on the people in the areas to be patient as all efforts are in top gear to ameliorate their sufferings on the road , the lawmakers unanimously invited the Commissioner for Lands and Infrastructure, Mr Raimi Aminu to the House with a view to finding alternative solution to the lingering deplorable condition of the road.
