the government to obtain N20 billion bailout from the CBN.
Also during Tuesday’s plenary, the legislators called on the
government to construct three roads linking 13 villages in Rimin Gado and Tofa
Local Government Areas.
The call was the outcome of a motion raised by Alhaji Bello
Butu-butu, the member representing the two local governments.
Butu-butu, who is also the Deputy Chief Whip, said the
motion was necessary due to the present bad condition of the roads.
"The condition of the roads has become serious threat to
the lives of the people of those areas,” he said.
