Kano govt. inaugurates 85km road, N21bn bridge in Madobi



Gov. Abba Yusuf of Kano State has laid the foundation for an 85-kilometer road project worth about N21 billion in Madobi Local Government Area of the state.

The governor said, at the inauguration of the project on Monday, that the project was poised to redefine rural landscapes and enhance the livelihoods of the populace.

NEWSVERGE reports that the 85 kilometers spans from Bridge Madobi to Madobi town, running through Yako to Kafin Mai Yaki, culminating in Kiru LGA.

He explained that the project underscored the commitment to bolster transportation infrastructure, which was crucial for agricultural and economic growth in rural Kano.

Additionally, the governor said a second project featuring a 15-kilometer road and a 200-metre bridge from Madobi Town to Kubarachi to Kura was also underway.

“This will showcase the administration’s profound dedication to catalyzing progress across the semi-urban and rural areas,” he said.

Yusuf articulated a bold timeline, while assuring completion of the projects within 18 and 24 months respectively.

“My vision aims not only at bridging urban-rural divides but also cultivating sustainable economic pathways, thus curbing rural-urban migration and fostering prosperity in hinterlands,” he said.

NEWSVERGE reports that former Kano State Governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, commended the governor’s effort toward the project while applauding the electorate for choosing wisely in the previous election.
