Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State has flagged off the construction of 21.7km road Anchau-Gadas-Palla Road in Kubau and Ikara Local Government Areas of the State.
The groundbreaking ceremony was performed on Saturday as part of the activities lined up to mark Governor Sani’s 100 days in office.
Speaking in Anchau that governor noted that the construction of the road is a significant milestone in rural development as the road will connect 32 villages across the two local government areas.
Governor Sani noted that the road project will address the transportation challenges faced by the 32 communities along the route.
He emphasised that the road would not only facilitate movement of people but also enhance the transportation of agricultural produce from farms to markets, ultimately boosting rural development and the local economy.
“The reason we have decided to come this morning for this groundbreaking for the construction of 22 km road is simply because we know the significance of this very road.
“The people of Kubau local Government and People of Ikara local Government had approached us during our campaign and informed us about the importance of this road.
“This road connects at least 32 villages from Anchau to Pala and the reason why we have decided to quickly start the construction of this road is simply because it will revitalize the economies of the rural areas, particularly those 32 communities.”
Governor Sani also expressed sympathy to the people of Sayasaya in Ikara Local Government over the tragic loss of lives in the Friday night attack by bandits, promising to bring the culprits book.
He emphasised that the security of lives and property is a top priority of his administration, and he will not tolerate conflict entrepreneurs moving freely across the State.
In their separate remarks, the host chairmen of Kubau and Ikara LGAs expressed their gratitude to Governor Sani for selecting their local government areas as beneficiaries of the projects planned for the celebration of the first 100 days of his administration.
They acknowledged the positive impact construction of the road would have on their communities, fostering economic growth and improving the overall well-being of the residents.
Eng. Idris Adewole, speaking on behalf of the contractors, assured Governor Sani that the construction process would actively involve the people of Kubau and Ikara LGAs. He also requested the support and cooperation of traditional and religious leaders in ensuring the successful execution of the project within the designated timeframe.
