"I always use motorcycle most of the time which is not good for me and the people of my constituency are also complaining the same thing. 

"To prevent anything that will cause ransom from kidnappers, all these issues needs to be properly look into especially Ebute, Ijoun, Eggua and Ohunbe roads it's very bad for me to be using bike and I don't want the issue of being kidnapped."

Hon. Wahab also appealed to the committee on the public account to invite the SUBEB chairman and other contractors that has been awarded the primary school building in his constituency.

He alleged the contractors for not completing those schools building that has been paid for through the state government, rather the contractors said they have finished it.

According to Wahab "I have the list with me, there are some school building in Asa, Ibeku, ohunbe there are some school building there which they have not completed but they always said they have finished it, the pupils of those schools have no choice than to seat outside the school class rooms which is not proper. 

"Mr speaker sir, we are in the raining season why are we punishing all these pupils, why the contractors punishing them, this is not good as they wouldn't be able to focus on their study but I believe the Governor has paid the contractors all the money but contractors refused to do it."
