YYCF, in a statement signed by its Director of Communications, Mr. Ayo Olorunsola asserted that; “the appointment of Engr Adeniyi as the Chairman of FERMA is another testimony that President Jonathan is desirous to build this nation and ready to bring on board competent men and women to man all the strategic posts.”

The described Engr. Adeniyi as a professional engineer and technocrat of immeasurable experience and exposure needed to put FERMA in the breath of the transformation agenda of Mr President.

''We are confident that Engr Adeniyi will make a better and greater impact at FERMA which will invariably affect Nigerians who commute daily on some of these deadly Federal roads,” YYCF said.

The group called on the new Chairman of FERMA to see his appointment not only as a call to serve but as a test of his personal integrity and professional competence, adding that; “FERMA efforts at making federal roads in the country, especially those in the South Western part that are crying motorable must be redoubled. ”

“Nigerians and Nigeria are eagerly waiting to see a rapid and impressive performance of FERMA during your tenure.

“We therefore call on the new Chairman not to waiver but to put his wealth of professional experience, exposure and credibility to work at FERMA, for to whom much is given, much is expected,” the group said
