By Bosede Olufunmi, Kano.

 

The Federal Government has called on the contractor handling the ongoing construction and dualism of the Kano-Maiduguri road to ensure the timely completion of the project.

 

The Minister of State for Works and Housing, Umar El-Yakub, made the call on Friday, said this during an inspection tour of the Kano-Wudil-Shuarin road, Section One, in Kano.

 

“This is a 15 or 16-year-old project; the vision of this administration is to ensure that project be placed on infrastructure.

 

“We just finished our National Council meeting, tagged season of completion. We want all the bridges and roads to be completed between the last quarter of this year and the beginning of 2023.

 

“Three out of the five sections had been completed, remaining two sections,’’ he said.

 

The minister explained that the project was covered by the SUKUK plan to enable the contractors to get their money in time.

 

El-Yakub added that the project involved the construction of a two-lane carriageway and upgrading of the existing road.

 

“Contractors should redouble their effort, in terms of human and resources, to be able to meet up before the end of this year,’’ he said.
