In his efforts to facilitate and enhance the movement of citizens and agricultural products in towns and rural communities, within the framework of good service delivery, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State pointed out the road network of the town of Garo and neighboring communities of Kabo local government.
Representing Governor, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Murtala Sule Garo, who was supported by Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure Development, Eng. Idris Wada, during the inauguration ceremony on Saturday, assured that the administration of Ganduje would work around the clock to improve the development of rural infrastructure.
There is an 18 km road from Kanye-Kabo-Dugabau, which crosses eight wards out of the ten Kabo local government wards. The project started in 2018 and was abandoned halfway.
But the contract was terminated when 9 km were built and reallocated, for the completion of the remaining 9 km. The total cost of the contract is N1.6b.
There is also another road construction in Kabo town, totaling 3.9 km, at a total cost of over N800 million.
Experts believe that the project, when completed, would greatly facilitate the movement of agricultural products between communities, in addition to facilitating the movement of individuals without any hitches.
This project, like similar projects in so many rural communities in the state, belies the unsubstantiated claims by some people that rural communities are being left behind in this administration’s infrastructure development. Similar projects could also be seen elsewhere.
