Kwara State House of Assembly has condemned indiscriminate erection of bumps and speed breakers on roads in the state, just as it cautioned residents to disengage from the act to prevent road damage.
The condemnation was brought to the fore sequel to a Motion on Notice titled ” Indiscriminate Construction of Bumps and Speed Breakers on Roads in Kwara State” sponsored by a lawmaker representing Ekiti Constituency, Abdulganiyu Gabriel during Wednesday (April 28, 2021) plenary.
Mr Gabriel expressed worry that bumps unprofessionally erected could result to destruction of newly constructed and rehabilitated roads.
Other lawmakers in their submissions cautioned communities erecting bumps and speed breakers to exercise restraint to prevent road damage and mishaps.
Reading the resolutions of the House, Speaker Engineer Yakubu Salihu called on the state government to ensure that state and local government roads are not tempered with without due approval from appropriate authority.
Engineer Salihu tasked Kwara State Road Maintenance Agency to put machinery in place to ensure proper construction of standard bumps and speed breakers on roads where considered necessary.
