The Ohi of Eganyi, Alhaji Musa Isah Atuja in Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi state has called on Governor Idris Wada to award the contract for the reconstruction of the Adogo/Ajaokuta Federal Road which has been abandoned by the Federal Government before seeking for reimbursement.
The Federal road which links Kogi State with Edo in the west and Enugu in the East through Ajaokuta, Adogo and Okene has become a death trap and a haven for the men of the underworld who have been terrorising motorists along the rout.
The royal father who spoke yesterday in his palace at Adogo when the Governor paid him a courtesy visit in continuation of his campaign tour of local government areas across the state said it is very expedient for Wada to take urgent step in tackling the problem so as to give the people a new lease of life.
He said due to the commitment of the Governor to the welfare of the people, they have no option but to vote massively for him to be re elected.
The traditional ruler however, commended the former Governor Alhaji Ibrahim Idris for correcting the imbalance in the traditional stool between Kogi East and other senatorial districts adding that the incumbent Governor has sustained his legacies.
Atuja promised that for that reason his subjects would vote for Wada to return him to Lugard House.
He also lauded the Governor for his developmental efforts that have cut across all sectors of the economy.
Responding, Governor Idris Wada said he had already made a serious case to the President over the resuscitation of the Ajaokuta Steel Complex which has been lying comatose and for the construction of the Adogo/Ajaokuta Federal Road that has been abandoned for too long.
