    With this present economic situation 2.99 billion naira for the renovation and modernization of motor parks is extravagant with public money.How much government will generate from transportation as a revenue?To invest this huge amount of money to the renovation of motor parks in this present economic situation in our country is like focus.To invest this huge amount in education or agricultural sectors is yielding an immediate result or direct impact on the good people of kebbi state.But transport sectors it takes how many time before generating even the revenue of 100 millions.To me instead of investing this huge amount in transportation sector in present situation is totally wasted of public property and lack of focus from the government.
