“If all the Local Government are connected, I believe there is still a lot to bring to the table particularly when it comes to health, investment will come in,health challenges will be minimal,the little things have to be fixed first before the big things, We still need bridges at the sabo area,ogolonto area, Imota rice mill has this will cut down travel time.”
