The Kano State Executive Council (SEC) has approved the emergency maintenance of 31 roads in the state capital at the cost of N1.036billion.
At a press conference on the outcome of the weekly SEC meeting in his office, the commissioner for Information, Youth and Culture, Mallam Muhammad Garba, said that the Ministry of Finance had been directed to release 30 percent of the total sum to the eight contractors for immediate mobilisation to the project sites.
He said that the poor state of the roads was impacting negatively on Kano’s position as an emerging mega city with reputation for being the North’s commercial nerve centre.
Some of the roads to be rehabilitated are Nassarawa Hospital, Sheik Jaafar, Eastern bypass-Unguwa Uku, Bompai, Abbatoir, Civic Centre, Obasanjo Road, Bello Road, Yantsaki Road-Tudun Murtala, Sharada, Rijiyar Zaki, Rafin Dan Nana, Ashton Road, Manladan Kulkul Road, Emir’s Palace, Kofar Fampo, and Yan Katako-Zaria Road.
