A five-hour downpour which flooded the Gombe-Bauchi Road on Saturday subjected motorists to untold hardship as they were held in a gridlock for over three hours.

Hundreds of cars were held up in the gridlock in Wuro-Dole, Akko Local Government of Gombe State.

The flood took over the road forcing motorists to park at safe distance.

A Commercial driver, Mallam Ibrahim Benjamin, told NAN that he had been plying the road for the past seven years, adding that the road was flood-prone.

Benjamin and Hajiya Hadizatu Hamisu, a motorist, called on the government to reconstruct the culvert to address the problem.

Hamisu wondered why government did not address the problem at that spot earlier, considering the prediction of heavy rains in August by the Nigeria Metrological Agency (NIMET).

Mr Ezekiel Atuman, another motorist, called for the construction of a high-tension bridge on the spot, which he said, was flood-prone,

A cleric, Mr Moses Abu, urged the government to find solution to the problem to reduce the hardship faced by travelers and the surrounding communities. [NAN]
