He said: “One of the ways to fight insecurity is to provide good roads so that security agencies will have access to go and deal with those people who said they are criminals.

“If you don’t have good roads, can you go to the farms? So, provision of good roads will help to improve our food security.

“When we fight the bandits, our fathers, our mothers will be able to go to the farm. When good road is provided, our farmers will go to the farm and bring what they have produced and that is the directive Mr. President has given to us that development should not only be concentrated in the city,” he explained.
