Some traders in Zuba, Gwagwalada Area council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have cried out to the FCT Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed to fix many dilapidated access roads in the area, so as to alleviate their plight as well as other residents and motorists plying the roads.
They also called on the minister to provide potable drinking water for the residents, to relieve them of a lot of sufferings they are faced with especially during the dry season.
According to the chairman of the Okirika sellers in Zuba, Mr. Jibrin Shuaibu, who made this appeal in an interview with Peoples Daily, recently, in Zuba, alleged that the inhabitants were being neglected by the government of the day, in terms of provision of basic amenities.
