The President gave the warning at the official commissioning and handing over a 55-kilometre road linking Nguru-Gashu’a-Bayamari in Yobe State, DailyPosts reports.

Represented by the Minister of Power, Abubakar Aliyu, Buhari explained that the road has been built to the highest quality of design and workmanship, hence if is well used and not ab#sed, it would last for its design service life span.

According to the president, “Road ab#se takes many forms such as overloading of vehicles and trucks which accelerates pavement [email protected], the spilling of petroleum products which dissolves all the components and allow water to penetrate and converting the road shoulders to parking places that bring the onset of road failure from the shoulder.

We must all do our best to avoid these practices. Report them when they occur and act in a lawful manner to stop them.”
