The Northeast Governors Forum, NEGF, has lamented what they described as unfair treatment by the Federal Government in the area of road infrastructure provision to the region.
The forum, which comprises the governors of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno Gombe, Taraba and Yobe states, made this known in a communique signed by on Friday its chairman, Governor Babagana Zulum, at the end of their 3rd meeting in Yola, Adamawa State capital.
The forum further lamented the “slow or outright non-existent progress” on the pace of the roads already allocated in the sub region.
“Forum notes that the Sub-region has been unfairly treated in the provision of roads infrastructure by the Federal Ministry of Works & Housing.
“It further noted with dismay the slow or outright non-existent progress on the pace of the roads already allocated in the sub region and calls for the immediate reactivation and review of the comatose existing road contracts in the sub-region,” the communique said.
