Ilorin, April 28, 2021 The Kwara House of Assembly on Wednesday advised the State Government to caution residents against erecting illegal speed breakers on some newly constructed or rehabilitated roads.

The house gave the advice in its resolution after adopting a Motion on Notice titled “Indiscriminate Construction of Bumps and Speed Breakers on Roads in Kwara State”.

Naija247news reports that the motion, sponsored by Mr AbdulGaniyu Gabriel (APC-Ekiti), enjoyed the support of all members.
