My development pact with Nasarawa people still intact - Governor
“One thing we found difficult and that also fetch hardship for the people in the rural communities is the issue of culverts and bridges that separate them from each other during the peak of the rainy season,” he said.
Al-Makura said this on Tuesday when he inspected the ongoing construction of Akwanga-Angwan-Zaria bridge in Akwanga Local Government Area of the state.
“I will fulfill my covenant with the people of the state by embarking on projects that will be of benefit to the people in both rural and urban communities,” the governor said.
He promised that his administration would embark on provision of massive infrastructure to both rural and urban communities in the state.
He said the construction and reconstruction of roads across the state had been the central focus of his administration, considering the plight of some communities during rainy season.
The governor noted that his administration would not relent in its vision and mission to meet the yearnings and aspirations of the people of the state.
He said his administration would continue to place high premium on development programmes to enhance the people's wellbeing.
According to Al-Makura, the administration will be fair to everybody and ensure speedy transformation in terms of human and infrastructure development.
Al makura disclosed that government had revoked the contract for the construction of Akwanga-Angwan-Zaria bridge, saying it would be re-awarded to a more competent contractor.
The governor explained that government would open up villages around Angwan-Zaria, the headquarters of Akwanga-West Development Area through the construction of the bridge and rural roads.
He said a feasibility study would be done next week so that the state government could begin work as soon as possible.
Al-Makura said that Agwan Zaria, the heart of Mada people, would be given the necessary attention.
