Masari flags off N5.8b underpasses in Katsina

The Federal Government has said that it will complete and hand over many of the initiated or inherited projects for the benefit of Nigerians before the end of this administration.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, gave the promise, yesterday, in Kebbi State during the commissioning of the 155 kilometres of the Sokoto-Tambuwal-Jega-Koko-Birnin Yauri Road, Phase I & 2.

Malami, who represented President Muhammadu Buhari, expressed optimism that the project epitomises the determination of the government to improve the ease of doing business.

According to him, the road has been built to the highest quality of design and workmanship.

He, therefore, urged the users to avoid road abuse to ensure that it lasts for the designed service life.
MEANWHILE, Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, has flagged off the construction of two underpasses in the state capital at the cost of over N5.8 billion.

While the underpass at Kofar Kaura roundabout was awarded at the cost of N2.9 billion, that of Kofar Kwaya roundabout was awarded at cost of N2.8 billion.

The projects are expected to decongest traffic and ease the movement of motorists into and out of the state.

Masari, at the groundbreaking ceremony, said 70 per cent of the fund had been paid to the contractor handling the project.

He, however, urged the contractor to ensure quality work, assuring that balance of the 30 per cent was ready for payment soon as the contract is completed.
