Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano has flagged off roads network in Garo town and neighbouring communities of Kabo local government area of the state.
Representing the governor, Commissioner for local governments and Chieftaincy Affairs, Murtala Sule Garo, who was in company of the Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure Development, Eng. Idris Wada, at the ground breaking ceremony, Saturday, he assured that Ganduje administration would work round the clock to improve rural infrastructural development.
A statement issued by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, stated that the Projects flagged off include 18km long road from Kanye-Kabo-Dugabau, which crosses eight Wards out of the ten Wards of Kabo local government started since 2018 and abandoned half way.
The contract was revoked when 9km was constructed and re-awarded, for the completion of the remaining 9km at a total cost of N1.6b.
Another road construction was within Kabo town, which cumulatively stands at 3.9km, at the total cost of over N800m.
The statement added that, “experts believe that the project when completed would immensely assist movement of farm produce among the communities, apart from easing movement of individuals without any hitches.
“This project, like similar projects across so many rural communities in the state, faults unsubstantiated claims by some people that, rural communities are abandoned in the infrastructural development of this administration. Similar projects could also be sighted elsewhere.”
