Two years down the line, the road is still in its dilapidated state. However, the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, during the road inspection, has stated the North-East Development Commission to intervene in the reconstruction of the road.

He said, ““You can recall that Mr President announced that the road will be constructed when he came to inspect the ongoing oil exploration in the area but since then, we have not heard anything again.

“We then consulted the NEDC knowing that it is part of its mandate and I am glad to inform you that the NEDC team is here to help us reconstruct the road. In fact the sum of N1.5b has been approved to mobilize the contractor to site.”
