A forum of youth, Birchi Youth Forum of Kurfi Local Government Area of Katsina State has called on the state government under the leadership of Governor Aminu Bello Masari to construct speed bumps in their community.
This is contained in a press statement signed by the Chairman of the forum, Abubakar Aminu Birchi and made available to newsmen including Katsina Post.
The statement reads:
After visiting and sympathizing with victims of Birchi highway accident, we are constrained to call on all authority concern, most particularly Katsina state government on the need to construct speed bumps (speed breakers) in Birchi town of Kurfi local government to contained consistent killing of our people by reckless motorist.
The call became necessary as absent of the speed bumps (speed breakers) have made the road a death trap to people going to farm, market and student going to school, as it is very rare for a month past without an accident, because reckless drivers take advantage of absent of speed bumps in the area to drive as if they are passing though Sambisa forest.
From January 2019 to date we have witnessed so many accidents in Birchi town that resulted to five people death and about fifteen hospitalized, as even presently three person are on admission for various injuries they obtained in just recently accident. All courtesy of the absent of this speed bumps (speed breakers).
As we pray Allah to forgive all that lost their lives, wish all on hospital admission speedy recovery, we are using this medium to call on Katsina state government to come to our rescue by constructing speed bumps (speed breakers) in at least four strategic areas: secondary school area, primary school area, main town area and finally market area which we hope will halt future occurrence.
