A community within Kaduna metropolis, has reconstructed an abandoned culvert in an effort to address flood as the rain commences, while appealing to government for assistance.
The appeal was made while commissioning a culvert that was reconstructed by the community members as a self-help project.
The chairman of the community,Mr Jakada Joseph Dauda said the project became necessary so as to save themselves from the challenges they encounter especially during rainy season.
He explained that the culvert is a connection to many busy roads into the community which has been abandoned for a long period.
He commended the community members for their immense contribution towards the success of the project.
Jakada Joseph call on the State government to contribute towards reconstructing other culverts and drainages to save them from flood and day to day activities.
He added that the previous government of PDP has promised to intervene but to no success as well as the present Government which he said is still not yielding any positive result since the first four years tenure is gone.
While interviewing some community members, they showed their appreciation towards the project and promised to do all they could to contribute towards reconstructing some other culverts.
