Coat of arms

The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Babangida Hussaini has appealed to the public to desist from destroying public utilities, imploring them to help the government in it’s effort to preserve them for the good of the nation

Hussaini gave the warning over the weekend during a routine inspection of the ongoing Abuja – Kano road project and coincidentally saw some women burning tyres under the bridge of a railway crossing along Zaria-Kano section of the expressway.

He queried “where are you destroying our bridges, our roads and public utilities, this is putting the government and public life in danger.”

The Perm. Sec. was on inspection of the ongoing reconstruction work of the road when he saw some women burning tyres under the bridge of the railway crossing along Zaria-Kano section of the road and he stopped to address them.

Hussaini told them that their action was putting the citizens life in danger and a waste of resources of the government, thereby drawing back the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari at providing quality road infrastructure for the good of Nigerians.

While expressing his anger, he also sounded a strong warning to them to desist from such activities henceforth. He implored them to see government’s properties as their personal property so that they protect and preserve them jealously.

In their reactions, one of the women caught in the act said that, they only saw some other people burning tyres under the bridge and that they only joined without knowing the implication.

She expressed regrets over their actions, telling the Perm Sec and his entourage that “we have to obey our leaders.”
