Buhari commends Katsina govt for roads construction,says infrastructure will enhance security

President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in Daura, Katsina, said efforts of the state government in constructing and improving road networks across the state deserved commendation, especially the focus on linking economically viable areas in the hinterlands to markets, public institutions and schools.

The President, who commissioned the 28 km Randa Doguru- Gallu Kwanar-Gwanti-Shargalle road, said investments in the infrastructure of the state will also encourage channelling of time and resources in positive economic and social activities, and enhance security.

He noted that Governor Aminu Bello Masari had shown commitment to the development of infrastructure, urging him to keep on investing for the future of the state.

In his remarks, the governor said 18 roads across the state were earmarked for construction, and ten had been completed, while eight were at various stages.

President Buhari had in August commissioned the Shinkafi-Yandaki-Gafiya—Abdallawa-Dankaba and Kwanar Sabke-Dan Aunai-Dutsi roads.
