Pres. Tinubu is having sleepless nights over ‘very bad inherited economy’ — Minister of works, David Umahi

Minister of Works, Senator David Umahi, has said President Bola Tinubu is having sleepless nights on how to solve inherited bad economy.

The minister stated this during the inspection of the completed section of the Aba axis of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway in Abia State on Saturday, January 27, 2014.

The former Governor of Ebonyi State also ordered the arrest of some persons trading on the road.

He expressed disappointment over the activities of the traders, saying that they would be charged to court according to the law of the land.

While berating the erring traders, the minister said: “It appears the people here like to inflict inj¥ries on themselves. They can’t even allow the contractor to work. They drive against traffic. They use the completed road for parks, trading and dumping of refuse.

The whole of Aba refuse is being dumped on this road. It is not encouraging at all. I will advise the governor to set up a task force here.

We wouldn’t like after the Federal Government had spent so much here we see people building and trading on the road. So, the only way out for this work to be completed is for the governor to set up a task force and clear the road.

The citizens of this country will need to do their bit, while leadership also does its bit. That is the only way it will work.

While Mr President is passing through sleepless nights on how to solve the problems of a very bad inherited economy, Nigerians should support him and also support themselves.”
