The duo made this appeal following their jointly inspection visits to the location of the unfortunate incidence on Friday, the following day of the mishap.
According to reports made available to oyovoice , heavy downpour of rain was responsible for the collapsed of the bridge.
According to Hon Ganiyu Ayesoro and Hon Lukuman Balogun who share the same boundary, the unfortunate collapse has halted movement of Motorists on the bridge and passengers are now stranded, disclosing that Motorists now use Kishi/Igbeti road as alternative route before they can transport to Igboho.
They therefore call for government immediate intervention,noting that the situation has led to hike in transport fare for passengers.
They also solicit the assistance of the Ministry of Works and Transport under the leadership of Commissioner for Works and Transport in rehabilitating the bridge to reduce agony of the road users plying the road and to sustain the economic activities of the area.
They urge road users to be patient as all will be done by the relevant authorities to address the controllable situation.
