Zamfara gov’t approves N700 million for reconstruction of bridges, roads in 4 LGAs

The Zamfara State Government said it had earmarked N700 million for the reconstruction of five bridges and several roads across four local government areas of the state.

The Commissioner for Community Development and Cooperatives, Alhaji Abdullahi Gurbin-Bore, stated this on Friday during the inauguration of the projects at the 1 Brigade, Nigerian Army Cantonment in Gusau, the state capital.

The commissioner listed the bridges to include Maigungumi Village and Tofa village near Dansadau, Maru LG;  Badoki village bridge, Gurusu and Nasarawa Bukulu bridge in Bukuyum LG, as well as Ruwan Gora bridge in Talata Mafara area.

The project also included a 500-metre access road to Staff School of 1 Brigade, Nigerian Army Cantonment, Gusau.

He said approval of the project followed complaints from the affected communities.

Gurbin-Bore said some of the affected bridges had broken down over the last four years.

The commissioner assured that the project,  being executed through direct labour, would be completed within the shortest time to reconnect the affected communities.
