NNPC Roads Reconstruction: Gov Sani Bello applauds Nigerian Gov’t, others

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello has expressed gratitude to the Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari for the approval given to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to intervene in the reconstruction of some federal roads in the state.

According to the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mary Noel-Berje, the Governor made this known while speaking to journalists at the Government House Minna, the state capital.

The Governor said the intervention in the reconstruction of some critical federal roads in the state would help ease movement within the state and also reduce the risk of road crashes.

He noted that “Niger state has been at the receiving end for years now. Most of the traffic moving cargos to South-West and up North pass through the state which has left the roads within Minna the state capital and other linked roads in bad condition.

“If we can fix these roads it will help ease movement within the state, reduce travel time and risk of accidents. So I can’t wait to see the contractors fully mobilized to sites “, he added.

The state chief executive said with the contracts already awarded, he was optimistic that work will begin on those roads without further delay.

The Governor also appreciated the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, the NNPC, Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) among other bodies involved in the strategic intervention.

Recall that Niger State was among the states to benefit from the strategic intervention of NNPC to reconstruct 21 federal roads in the country out of which nine are in North Central with the majority situated in the state.
