Governor Nasiru Ahmed El Rufa’i

Kaduna State Government is seeking the intervention of the Senate in reconstruction of the forty year old Kaduna- Jos Road, to ease the plight of travelers.

Governor Nasiru El Rufa’i made the appeal when the Senate Committee on works paid him a visit.

Malam Nasiru El Rufa’i said the Roads were in disrepair and required urgent attention.

He noted that with an annual budget of One hundred and Sixty Nine billion Naira for Federal Highways, alternative sources of funding must be sought to enable Government meet its commitment.

The Governor also urged the committee to intervene in accelerating the Birnin Gwari/ Dan Sadau roads which links Kaduna, Zamfara and Katsina States.

Responding, Chairman of the committee, Senator Adamu Aleiro said over five hundred roads across the country were managed by the Ministry.

He added that Rehabilitation of the Roads including the Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano received funds from the annual budget, Sovereign wealth fund and recovered looted funds.
