Kano Government to execute pending projects

07 August 2015, 07:49Augustine Osayande

Abuja – The Kano State Government has pledged to complete all projects inherited from the previous administration.

These would be completed subject to availability of funds, need by communities and time constraints.

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje stated this while receiving the report of the committee set up by the government on completion of ongoing projects in the state.

The governor noted the large number of projects scattered around the state and their capital intensive nature. 

He explained that the government had to set up a committee to ascertain their level of completion, payments made and other details necessary for successful completion. 

“Although all the inherited projects are very vital, the government is compelled by funding constraints to complete them gradually,” Ganduje said.

He stated that two separate council committees would be set up to specially study the Housing and 5 kilometer projects and Infrastructure and Water projects sections of the report submitted before a final position on their completion is reached.

Ganduje also promised that the government would embark upon new projects that would improve the quality of lives of the citizenry particularly in the areas of urban mass transit, Independent Power Projects and solar energy, among others.

The chairman of the committee overseeing the projects, Ibrahim Haruna, explained that some of the projects could be completed within that next few weeks while others should be completed in the long term in view of the present economic challenges facing the state.

He stated that the committee observed the necessity to strengthen the state Project Monitoring Bureau to make it more efficient and the need to avoid overloading contractors and consultants. 

Ganduje succeeded Rabiu Kwankwaso, who served a one-year term from 2011.
