In four years, I will build a 1,500-kilometer road, said Governor Bago

Over the next four years, Niger State Governor Mohammed Umaru Bago has pledged to repair and build 1,500 kilometers of roads.

At the groundbreaking for the repair and building of 202 kilometers of Minna Township roads, the governor made this announcement.

He claims that his plan to revitalize the state’s infrastructure through construction of new roads is part of an expansive urban regeneration strategy.

The state has a significant network of federal roads, he said, and his administration will not hesitate to repair them while negotiations continue with the White House over the return of funds to be reinvested in the federal road projects.

He also charged the state’s young people with making the most of the road improvements as an opportunity to put their skills to use in the economy.

Earlier, Suleiman Umar, the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, stated that the total length of the road project is 202.4 km, and that it is divided into two stages, with the first phase encompassing eight roads and the second phase encompassing fourteen highways.

To further elaborate, Umar said, “This is in addition to five interchanges and flyovers at strategic locations and new roads as a pass that will open up the state capital.”

Abdulmalik Muhammed, the Speaker of the Niger State House of Assembly, praised the governor for his resolve to make the necessary changes in the state and pledged the legislature’s continued work and support for the people of Niger.

David Wang, CEO of China Civil Engineering Corporation (CCECC), has promised to work with locals and other stakeholders to complete projects on schedule and with high quality.
