The motion charged the Federal Government to urgently repair the neglected road by making sure Setraco moved to the site.

The company’s bulldozers were seen fixing the Zarama-Sampou-Opokuma nd of the East-West Road on Saturday.

Azaiki, who is a former Secretary to the Bayelsa State Government, said the “presidency informed me that Setraco has moved to site with photos to prove that work is going.”
