Kaduna Governor inaugurates 6km bypass

Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani has inaugurated the construction of a six-kilometre bypass road from Sabon Tasha to Juji in the Chikun Local Government Area of the state.

According to News Agency of Nigeria, the groundbreaking ceremony took place on Monday in Kaduna marking a significant step towards enhancing connectivity in the seemingly neglected Sabon Tasha region.

In addition to this, Sani initiated the construction of a 35-kilometer road connecting Gadar Gayan in the Igabi Local Government with Gwaraji and Maraban Kujama in the Chikun LGA.

The governor emphasised that these projects were part of his administration’s commitment to narrowing the gap between rural and urban areas, making rural living more enjoyable.

Flanked by his Deputy Dr Hadiza Balarabe,  Sani highlighted the immediate employment opportunities generated by the initiatives, especially benefiting the communities along the 35-kilometer road.

He projected that upon completion in 12 months, the road would link farming communities to markets, significantly aiding agricultural productivity.

Sani said, “Our government is determined to facilitate commerce and opportunities through the provision of good road networks. Igabi and Chikun LGAS have huge agricultural potential hence we are committed to giving our local farmers the necessary support required to boost their yields and market their produce.”

He assured that the construction process would create job opportunities for both skilled and unskilled workers.

Moreover, he emphasised the positive impact on safety and reduced post-harvest losses for farmers in towns and communities along the route.

The Chairman of Chikun LGA, Salasi Musa, said that the road projects would have a positive impact on the economy and lives of thousands of people in Sabon Tasha, Juji, and adjoining communities.
