The Senate on Wednesday adopted a motion sponsored by Senator Jibrin Barau representing Kano North Senatorial district for the reconstruction and dualisation of Kano-Dambarta-Kazaure-Daura-Niger Republic boarder road. – Danbatta – Kazaure – Daura – Niger border.

The motion which was co-sponsored by Senator Baba – Kaita Ahmad representing Katsina North maintained that the road from Kano State to Niger would be of economic importance to the country.

One of the prayers which was sustained after the debate was the provision of adequate funding in the 2021 budget.

Senator Jibrin noted with dismay that the volume of traffic on the road has led to congestion thereby slowing down the free flow of vehicular movement and has become a source of worry to drivers and commuters alike.

He expressed concerned that travel time on the road has tripled owning to the narrow nature of the roads with it’s attendant traffic, resulting in a slow down of commercial activities and goods.

The Senator was disturbed that armed bandits, taken advantage of the narrowness and non-dualization of the roads have become a law unto themselves by ambushing, robbing, dispossessing and killing commuters at will.

He noted that the state of the roads required immediate reconstruction and dualization to reduce unacceptable level of accidents and robbery.

According to him, the importance of the roads lies not only in the fact that It is a gateway to the neighbouring country, saying but of it’s importance is the commercial, agricultural and other economic viability, especially the evacuation of agricultural and industry product which the cities have in abundance.

Senator Jibrin therefore urged the Federal Ministry of Works to designate the road for immediate reconstruction and dualization and also allocate adequate funds in the 2020 budget currently being prepared for the road project.
