According to Bello, “something needs to be done immediately to provide alternative routes” and he hopes to be able “to get some quick intervention from the Federal Government so that we can support our local farmers that have lost their livelihood due to floods.”

Asked about the President’s response to his request, Bello said, “The President believes more in action, he doesn’t talk too much. I think from his countenance I can say that he felt bad especially for Niger State. We are shouldering all the weight, every cargo from South West passes through Minna specifically.
