The people of Wase Local Government Area in Plateau State have commended the role played by the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alh Idris Ahmed Wase in the securement of N2.867 billion for the construction of 4×20 Wase bridge linking the area with other parts of the country.
The chairman of Wase Elders Forum, Mallam Aminu Abdullahi who spoke on behalf of the people of the community gave kudos to what he called excellent representation by the member representing Wase Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Abuja.
He said, the recent approval of the road and bridge between Wase-Langtang road that collapsed last year by the Federal Government which followed the memorandum and cries of the Deputy Soeaker of the House of Representatives is remarkable.
Accordingly to him, the construction of the road awarded to Metropolitan Construction Nigeria Limited will no doubt, boost the transportation of abandoned agricultural products and movement of people in the area.
