“So, whoever goes against the law in this state will face the wrath of law and that is just it.

“And concerning all the requests on road construction, we will plan ahead. Some of these projects will be included in the budget that we are going to come up with next year because we have to work with the fund in government coffers.

“When you engage with our team on budget, which will be going round very soon, make sure some of these roads are mentioned  and I give you my promise that we will do all we can to ensure the right things are done.”
