Kano elders to meet Fashola over deteriorating state of Kano-Gwarzo-Dayi Road
The Kano-Gwarzo-Dayi road is a major link to Katsina, Sokoto, Zamfara and Kebbi states.
“We are formally going to lodge a complainant on the deplorable condition of the Kano-Gwarzo-Dayi road, which has become a death trap,” Alhaji Yunusa Haruna-Kauyu, the member representing Gwarzo constituency told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Friday.
He said the delegation will comprise the Kano State Commissioner of Works, Alhaji Muazu Magaji, the Senator representing Kano North senatorial zone, Sen. Barau Jibrin-Maliya and members of the House of representatives from the zone among others.
“It is necessary to meet the minister in order to express the concerns of our people on the deteriorating condition of the road.
“It is a very important road which links Kano with four other states and Niger Republic.
“The potholes along the road had witnessed a number of patches, but even the potholes that were patched last year have already gone off.
“What this road requires now is total rehabilitation not patching of potholes.
“So we want the Federal Government to look at the possibility of awarding contract for the total rehabilitation of the road,” Haruna-Kauyu said.
NAN reports that the Kano-Gwarzo-Dayi road is a major link to Katsina, Sokoto, Zamfara and Kebbi states, as well as parts of Niger Republic.
The road was constructed during the administration of military President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida and had never witnessed any major rehabilitation since then.
The lawmaker said that the total rehabilitation of the road would boost social and economic activities across the four states and beyond.
