Governor Bello Mohammed Mutawalle of Zamfara State has commended Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa State for his great zeal towards developing the state.
Mutawalle gave the commendation while commissioning 347.6kms rural access roads and river crossings as well as maintenance equipment across the 21 local government areas of Adamawa State.
Speaking at the ceremony at Kuva Gaya, Hong LGA, the Zamfara State Governor said despite the lean resources in Adamawa, coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic that affected global economy, Governor Fintiri was able to execute a lot of projects
He therefore, urged the people of the state to support the laudable achievements of the present administration.
Earlier, Governor Fintiri said the projects were part of fulfilling his campaign promises to enhance critical economic growth, reduce poverty and provide mobility in rural areas.
He disclosed that the roads commissioned will link over 300 communities to farm lands and schools and provide other socioeconomic opportunities.
The Speaker, Adamawa State House of Assembly, Alhaji Aminu Iya Abbas thanked the governor for carrying out projects across Adamawa and assured him of unflinching support.
The Commissioner of Rural Infrastructure and Community Development, Alhaji Abdullahi Prambe said since the inception of the Fintiri-led administration, 600 kms of access roads were being covered along with 19 river crossings.
The national Coordinator of (RAMP) 2 who was represented by Mr. Musa Nimrod revealed that Adamawa is adjudged as the best in the country by the World Bank in terms of executing (RAMP) projects and called on the governor to facilitate surface dressing of the roads.
New NIgerian Newspapers reports that the road projects were flagged off in November 2019 by the Fintiri administration in collaboration with Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAMP) 2 aimed at sustaining access networks to all rural populations and stimulate economic growth.
