Speaking at the inauguration of the project, he said that the project was among the numerous projects he had lobbied for and which  had been captured in the 2021 budget.

According to him, all the projects were aimed at alleviating the hardships his people were passing through.

He further explained that his desire was to bequeath lasting legacies for his constituents, stressing that  human capital development was beyond his political ambition.

“The next election is not more than the legacies I want to leave behind; whatever comes out of the forthcoming 2023 elections is the will of God

“I want my legacies to speak for me; I want to be remembered for the developmental strides I have put on ground for my people when I leave office

“I will not sacrifice the wellbeing of my people on the altar of my political ambition; I do not want to disappoint my constituents.

“If I am not destined to be reelected to the national assembly, so be it, but let God’s will be done,”he said

Komsol said that the road project, if completed would address the challenges of access road by the inhabitants of the benefiting communities.

He added that the road would also open up the communities to business opportunities and promote agricultural activities among rural farmers.


“As you all know, our people are basically farmers and lack of access road has been a major challenge, so, by the time this road is completed, rural farmers will be able to move their farm produce to the markets with ease,”he said.

The lawmaker said that the road which is part of his constituency project, is domiciled in the Lower Benue River Basin Development Authority (LBRBDA).

Komsol called on the benefiting communities to cooperate and support the contractor to carry out the project within specified time frame.

He, however, urged the contractor to construct the road within specification, adding that such would enable the people enjoy the dividends of democracy.
