The ward head of Jenta Adamu, Jos North Local Government Area, Plateau State, Da Kabala Bako Gode, has decried the absence of both the federal and state government presence in the community.
Jenta Adamu is where both the federal and the state civil servants reside.
The ward head lamented inaccessible road networks, lack of good drinking water and absence of police outpost, considering the high rate of cult activities and incidences of rapes going on in the community.
Gode felt with dismay the manner the three communities have been losing people via motor accidents, and worried by the non-intervention of the government.
He said with the rising cases of insecurity, Jenta Adamu Road network had been abandoned, this makes it easy for criminals to escape when they are being chased.
Gode lamented that Jenta Adamu is attached to the federal road but the government has refused to focus its attention on it. “You can see hoodlums terrorizing our people all the time.”
He appealed to the Plateau State government to as a matter of urgency create alternative routes or parks for heavy vehicles and restrict their movement in the morning until midnight, to help reduce constant accidents around the polo roundabout which is at the heart of the city.
Gode noted that Jenta Adamu, Kabong and Angwan-Suya communities in Jos North Local Government Area of the state hold Lalong administration responsible for total neglect , despite the votes the governor garnered in the affected wards that brought him into power.
He appealed to the government of Plateau to provide the communities with good roads and other basic amenities.
