President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the progress made in Katsina state by the governor, Aminu Masari in the last four years.
In a statement by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said Buhari thanked the governor for taking care of the people of his (President’s) constituency.
The President said this at the inauguration of the re-designed and re-constructed Fago-Katsayal-Kwasarawa-Jirdede-Koza Road during his visit to the state on Thursday.
“The road covering about 38 kilometres and linking four local government areas, was first constructed by the defunct Petroleum Trust Fund, which was then headed by Buhari, and it was extended to Dangwara, Jirdede and Koza towns.
“The road has the benefit of increasing mobility that would enable the predominantly farming population to optimally utilise the Koza dam.
“The dam also serves as a vital route option from Kano, Jigawa and Yobe to the famous Mai’Adua International Border Market,’’ the presidential aide said.
According to Shehu, the President also commissioned another 16 km road that links 20 agrarian communities.
Governor Masari appreciated the President for visiting the state and finding time to commission some projects, assuring him that the state government would always pursue people focused development projects.
