President Muhammadu Buhari is expected in Katsina State on Thursday to commission the multi-billion naira Zobe Dam Water Project and the 50-kilometre Dutsinma-Tsaskiya road.

This was contained in a statement signed by the DG (Media) to governor Aminu Masari, Abdu Labaran Malumfashi.

The Zobe Dam and Dutsinma-Tsaskiya Road projects, both located in the Dutsinma Local Government Area of Katsina State, were executed by the federal government and the Katsina State Government respectively.

“The multi-billion naira Zobe Dam Water Project was started in 1980 by the Second Republic administration of President Shehu Shagari, but was only recently completed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration of President Muhammadu Buhari,” the statement read in part.

“The 50-kilometre Dutsinma to Tsaskiya road was constructed in 2017 by the incumbent APC administration, under the leadership of Governor Aminu Bello Masari,” the statement added.
