Zamfara State Government says it has earmarked 60 billion naira for the construction of roads across the state in 2020.
The state Commissioner for Works and Transport, Alhaji Ibrahim Mayana, stated this while speaking to newsmen in Gusau after defending his ministry’s budget for 2020 at the state house of assembly.
Mayana said the huge amount proposed for road projects indicated that the administration of Governor Bello Matawalle was committed to providing accessibility to people of the state, especially the rural dwellers.
According to him, the fund will be used for the completion of ongoing road projects and the construction of new ones across the state.
The commissioner added that the 2020 budget of the ministry would also fund other projects of the ministry, such as road maintenance and transportation.
