Kebbi Governor Flags off Yauri Road construction

Kebbi State Governor, Dr. Nasir Idris has flagged off N3.8 billion rehabilitation of Yauri township roads in Yauri Local Government Area of the state. 

Idris, while flagging off the roads in Yauri on Saturday, also announced the rehabilitation of Warra township roads in Ngaski Local Government Area worth N1.8 billion. 

He said the road's rehabilitation and construction would be a continuous process under his administration.

"Of all the local government areas of the state, Warra roads are the only ones not rehabilitated which the government found necessary to take action." 

Idris also said that roads in Zuru Emirate would be next in line for rehabilitation, adding that the negotiations were being finalised between the state government and the Federal Government for the completion of the Koko/Dabai road and construction of Malando- Warra- Kainji road.

"We informed the federal government that the present contractor handling the project is incompetent, and would therefore like the federal authority concerned to revoke the contract and hand it over to the state government," the Governor's Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yahaya Sarki quoted him in a statement on Saturday.

The Governor also announced that his administration would equally rehabilitate roads in Argungu Emirate as well as other parts of the state. 

On his part, the Commissioner for Works and Transport, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Faruk, said that the roads' rehabilitation was in line with the good governance spirit of Gov. Idris's administration.

"The project entails the rehabilitation and reconstruction of four number- roads including local government Dawanau junction, market road about - Tashar Garkuwa, Garkan Dudu- Liberia junction and police station - Union Bank at a total cost of N3.8 billion," he said. 

In his remarks, the Emir of Yauri, Dr Zayyanu-Abdullahi, reaffirmed his loyalty and support to the incumbent administration and thanked the governor for fulfilling his campaign promises.
