Sokoto
and Zamfara state governments have completed the repairs of the 214 km
Sokoto-Gusau federal highway to ease transportation challenges
encountered by commuters plying the important route.
 
This was contained in a statement issued in Sokoto Monday by Malam Imam Imam, the spokesman to Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State and made available to THE PRECISION.
The road, which connects Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina all through to Kaduna states, was fixed at the cost of N100 million.
“The
two states combined resources to fix the road as it is the main link
between their capitals and other parts of the country. It is one of the
most important roads in the North West because it connects to other
routes leading to neighbouring Niger Republic,” the statement added.
It
said while Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara shouldrered the
responsibility for fixing the Gusau -Tureta portion of the road,
Tambuwal’s government provided funds for the fixing of the route between
Tureta and Sokoto town.
The statement added that a submission will be made to the federal government for refund since the highway belongs to it.
“The
important thing is to achieve zero porthole on the crucial route and
this has been achieved. The effort has enhanced safety of vehicles and
commuters. It has also improved movement of goods especially
agricultural products because it is a major agric zone in the
federation,” the statement added.
