Continuing” we shall declare a state of emergency on our roads as they are in deplorable shapes and only a concerted efforts by someone who is committed like me that can ameliorate the situation,that’s one area I am interested. Also,the development of our youth is key while our market will be upgraded and rehabilitated so that our mothers,sisters and aunts will have where to sell their wares. Our government shall be a transparent one and we will ensure all interests are protected,stressing Oshodi will be greater.
