Saraki Flags off Road Projects in Zamfara State

Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, has urged all the government agencies at all levels to henceforth use locally made equipment in road construction and rehabilitation. He also called on government agencies at all levels to integrate Nigerian engineers, technicians and artisans in their workforce when embarking on construction projects as that would help in the utilization of local capacity as well as conserve scarce foreign exchange.

 

Speaking, weekend, when he flagged off massive roads construction in Zamfara State and projects being executed by Governor Abdul’aziz Yari, Saraki noted that the 8th National Assembly was on the verge of passing the Federal Roads Authority Bill and the National Road Fund Bill into law to promote a safe and efficient management of the nation’s road networks.

 

The project includes the Dauran-Birnin, Tsaba Birnin and Magaji Kauran Namoda Roads in Zamfara State. In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu, the Senate President, noted that the new laws, when enacted, would open opportunities for alternative funding mechanisms from the private sector that will guarantee continuous improvement of the quality of the nation’s highways year in year out.
