Kano Govt. to construct 44 feeder roads

20 August 2015, 18:56

Kano - Kano State Government on Thursday said it would construct one feeder road in each of the 44 Local Government Areas of the state.

The Commissioner for Water and Rural Community Development in the state, Alhaji Usman Riruwe, disclosed this in Kano when he received members of the State House of Assembly committee on Rural Development.

He said the decision to construct the roads was part of Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje’s promises to embark on projects that would have impact on the electorate.

He said the construction of the roads would facilitate movement of people and farm produce in the rural areas.

Riruwe also said that the government would construct more dams to enhance dry season farming.

The commissioner said the construction of dams would improve rural economy and reduce poverty among the residents, especially after the rainy season.

He assured the committee of government's support and cooperation and promised that people in the state would start enjoying dividends of democracy.

Responding, the Chairman of the committee, Alhaji Hayatu Musa (APC-Dawakin-Tofa), said they were at the ministry as part of their familiarisation visit to find ways of improving the living standards of rural dwellers.
