Mohammed, Fintiri inaugurate N20bn flyover projects in Bauchi



Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has inaugurated the construction of two flyover bridges in Bauchi metropolis.

Mohammed, who spoke during the official ground breaking ceremony of the project, said the two bridges would be constructed at N20 billion at the Central market and Wunti area of Bauchi.

He said the project is designed to redefine urban transportation to give the people of the state and visitors a new experience.

The project, he said, was informed by growth in population, encroachment of road corridors and the imperative of recovering the city from the chaotic uncontrolled and unplanned expansion.

“The project will transform the state’s skyline and together with the upgraded government house and other strategic developments, the landscape of the state would be change.

“The groundbreaking of the construction of two flyovers in Bauchi state marks another milestone in the infrastructural development and component of urban renewal of our administration.

“We really appreciate the people of Bauchi, within a very short time and notice, so many developments here have been demolished.

“People are calling me Mr demolishing, I am not a Mr demolishing, I’m a Mr modernity.

“We thank our people for the sacrifices they are making to make sure that we achieve our vision, and we wish to state that this project is in fulfillment of our promise to make sure that we make Bauchi state better,” he said.

Inaugurating the project, Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa, said the people of Bauchi made no mistake in electing Mohammed as the governor in view of the viable projects being executed under his stewardship of the state.

“Having one in Bauchi is therefore a good decision that would continue to define the vision of the governor in solving the problem of not only the present day Bauchi but the Bauchi of tomorrow,” Fintiri said.
