Ahmed Jaha Babawo also in Borno State have expressed appreciation to the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing on the award of contract for the re-construction of Gombe-Biu road, and urged the Ministry to ensure the contractor expedite action to complete the road.
This was made known to Journalists in a press release by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Boade Akinola, Tuesday in Abuja.
Betara who led the delegation of some House of Representatives Members to the Ministry in order to follow up on the state of some critical roads in their states and the strategy of the Ministry in fixing the roads noted that some of the contractors were complaining of funding challenges.
In his response the Permanent Secretary Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Babaginda Hussaini appreciated the gesture of the law makers in dialoguing with the Ministry in order to fix the critical roads in their constituencies adding that such collaboration with the Ministry by the National Assembly will help the government in its bid to improve road infrastructure. He also said that the gesture was a clear demonstration of love for their constituencies.
Babaginda informed the law makers that the major challenge in road infrastructure development was funding as the budgetary allocation was grossly inadequate to address the needs in the road sector.
He however informed the law makers that this administration had created new funding windows for road construction and repairs which has greatly helped in bridging funding gaps
The Permanent Secretary said “On behalf of the Honourable Minister Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN and the Management of the Ministry, I wish to reaffirm the commitment of this administration to complete all critical road projects as practically possible.
Furthermore, Hussaini averred that the Ministry was engaging with the contractors since the rains have abated in most parts of the country.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives member representing Zuru /Fakai /Danko Wasaru –Sakaba Federal constituency of Kebbi State also expressed appreciation to the Federal Government for constructing the Gadar – Zaima –Zuru – Gamji road which has aided trading activities in the area.
