Bauchi State Governor, Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, has embarked on the construction of the 19-kilometer road project linking Liman-Katagum-Luda in the Bauchi local government area. The road marks a significant step towards bridging the infrastructure gap in the region.
The newly constructed road promises to offer a lifeline to three agrarian communities with immense agricultural potential. These communities include Liman-Katagum, Lekka, and Luda. For these communities, the rainy season historically posed formidable barriers, rendering them virtually inaccessible. The road’s introduction, however, heralds a new era of possibilities.
Financing The Construction Of The 19-kilometer Road Project In Bauchi State.
The project, estimated at a cost of N1.4 billion, is a collaborative effort between the Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Products (RAAMP) and the World Bank. It underscores the Governor’s commitment to enhancing rural connectivity and agricultural development. Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed reaffirmed his unwavering dedication to delivering the dividends of democracy to the electorate.
Despite the economic challenges confronting the nation, the governor remains resolute in his determination to execute additional road projects. These road projects would further amplify the administration’s commitment to improving infrastructure in the state. Farouk Mustapha, the Commissioner for Rural Development and Special Duties, emphasized that the Liman-Katagum-Lekka-Luda Road underscores the administration’s commitment to fulfilling campaign promises made to the residents of these communities.
One resident from Anguwar Malam expressed profound relief, highlighting the road’s potential to address their transportation woes, particularly during the rainy season. In the past, these communities found themselves cut off from the nation during inclement weather. The construction of the 19-kilometer road project signifies physical connectivity. The road also signifies the promise of socio-economic development and prosperity for these previously isolated regions.
In sum, Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed’s visionary approach to rural infrastructure development is poised to unlock the untapped potential of agrarian communities. This will be exemplified by the Liman-Katagum-Luda Road project. The road will enhance accessibility, and bring the benefits of progress and prosperity to the doorstep of rural Bauchi State.
