The governor said , “What is required would be like , at least a ten – lane road pattern , at the minimum . That should be considered by the Federal Government .
“I want to call on you to help us declare an emergency on the state of our federal roads . It is as if , they are non -existent .
“We looked at these roads and we said it is important for people to be able to move between the states and the sub -region that share borders with us .”
