The House of Representatives on Tuesday charged the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing to immediately commence emergency repairs on all roads and bridges badly affected by rains across the country.

It urged the Ministry to present an action plan that may require any legislative framework (if necessary) for the immediate intervention programme to the House Committee on Works.

These resolutions were adopted following a motion of urgent importance on the need for emergency repairs of badly failed sections of roads and bridges affected by rainfalls across the country sponsored by Hon Ibrahim Adekunle Isiaka (APC-Ogun).

The House observed that the recent torrential rainfall experienced across the country in the last three months, which had caused severe damages to roads and bridges in different parts of the country.

It said the situation had caused woes, despondency, social and economic challenges to the members of the public.

The House lamented that no region in the country was spared from the ugly situation.

According to the Lawmakers, “Bridges and culverts have been submerged, roads have collapsed, and access to many towns and cities across the nation have been completely out off due to the impassability of the affected roads and bridges”.

The House was concerned that based on the condition, assessments carried out across the country revealed that an estimated cumulative length of the damaged roads was above 6,000 kilometres.

It worried that this existential threat was posing a danger to human safety and causing significant disruption to both economic and social activities.

According to them, “Motorists and commuters are enduring untold hardship and the security of lives and property of Nigerians have been greatly threatened consistently,” the House complained.

When the motion was put to a voice vote by Speaker Rep Femi Gbajabiami who presided over the plenary session it was unanimously supported.

The House mandated the Committee on Works to ensure compliance.
