President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged to complete and commission all road projects initiated and those inherited by his administration before he leaves office. He made the assurance while handing over the 296kms Sokoto-Tambuwal-Jega-Koko- Birnin Yauri completed roads.

The president, represented by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami also gave the assurance that all such roads in the nooks and crannies of the country would be delivered for the benefit of Nigerians before the expiration of his tenure.

The president while commissioning the roads expressed optimism that the project epitomized the determination of his government to improve road conditions to ease the movement of doing business across the country.

"This is a manifestation of our resolve to provide more job opportunities thereby enhancing productive engagement of our teeming population and economic value addition.

" It is in line with the federal government's policy to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty. It is a promise of change made and next level delivery established," the president said.

He said though the road project was commenced by the previous administration on the 13th of December, 2012 it was completed by his administration.

" We are entering a season of completion and delivery of projects including those inherited from the past administration before we come on board", he said.

He called on road users to avoid road abuse in order to ensure that it lasts for the designed service life.

The representative of the president, Malami commended Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State for his efforts in providing infrastructural development particularly the network of roads projects across the state.

In his remarks, Governor  Bagudu while commending the president for actualizing his promises made to the Kebbi people, stated that the road is of immense socio-economic benefits to the North, West and other parts of Nigeria, particularly the southwest.

He said "President Buhari's dream as captured in the three-point agenda on the economy, security and accountability have all come to the fore for this project to be delivered.

" The project was inherited from the last administration and Buhari voted a lot of money to ensure its completion, despite the dearth of funds". He added that the Sokoto - Kontagora Road crosses Gwandu, Aliero, Jega, Maiyama, Koko- Besse, Shanga, Yauri, and Nagasaki local government areas of Kebbi State.

To complement federal government efforts in road construction, he said his administration had constructed the Danwarai Saddam Road in Aliero local government and as well completed Sabiyel Kashinzama in addition to township road at Kashinzama, Sabiyel and other areas of the state.

The Minister of Works, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola emphasized that Buhari's agenda was yielding the desired positive fruits for Nigerians.

He explained that the event was just the tip of the iceberg as more roads were billed for commissioning across the country.

" Nigerians will now be driving on better and safer roads that will boost socio-economic developments and security", the minister said.
