Adamawa: NEDC To Expand N64.3 Billion Road Project To Gombi

The Northeast Development Commission (NEDC) has revealed that it has plans to expand N6.3 billion on construction of 32 kilometer Garkida-Damna road project in Gombi Local Government Area of Adamawa.

NEDC’s Managing Director, Mohammed Alkali said this during the ground-breaking ceremony of the project in Garkida on Monday.

He said the project was embarked upon due to the agricultural need of people in the areas, especially cash crop production.

According to him, given the importance of motorable roads to improved security and agricultural productivity, the commission would continue providing good motorable roads.

“The project would be handle by TRIACTA Nigeria Ltd with a completion period of 12 months,” he said.

Alkali said the Commission is constructing Phase 1 of the 22.5km Jere – Bowl road in Borno at the cost of N13.553 billion.

He listed other projects to include the 53km Gombe Abba – Kirfi road in Bauchi State at the cost of N11.697 billion and the 54km Mutai – Ngalda road in Yobe at the coast of N12.99 billion.

He disclosed that the commission is working in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing to fund various road projects in the region.

Earlier, NEDC’s Board Chairman, Major General retired,  Paul Tarfa  commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his  support to the Commission.
