Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has commissioned the 1.1-kilometre Gidan Zakkah–Kofar Waika road in Kano metropolis, constructed by his administration and valued at about N 270 million.
The road was commissioned today (Friday), March 22, 2019.
The project, according to Ganduje, was conceived following the noticeable hardship faced by commuters within the densely populated area, particularly during the rainy season.
He also expressed the commitment of his administration to ensure speedy completion of more roads, especially in the state capital to consolidate its urban renewal programme.
In his words; “As we can see, change is visible within this area as the quality of homes and indeed the environment is looking modern while people can now use their vehicles’ conveniently.
“Even those walking on foot will be happier as pavements have been constructed,” he stated.
“Because of our population and the arrival of people to do business, our city is growing and gradually becoming a mega city. This means that we must invest in critical infrastructure like roads to facilitate movement of goods and services,” he stressed.
Also speaking, the Commissioner for Works, Housing and Transport, Engr. Aminu Aliyu Wudil explained street lights would be installed at designated points along the road while the Kofar Waika Gate would be reconstructed at the end of the road, to preserve the state’s history and culture
