Mr Austin Roberts, a senior official of the union made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Jos.

“No entrepreneur will take a risk to deliver goods worth millions to a state that the roads are in bad shape."

“There must be good roads to ease the stress and hitches drivers encounter during traveling,’’ he said.
