Niger Gov commends FG, others over NNPC road intervention


Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has commended the Federal Government for the approval given to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to intervene in fixing some critical federal roads in the state.

Governor Sani Bello stated this while speaking to journalists at the Government House, Minna, the state capital.

According to him, the intervention in the reconstruction of the federal roads would assist in easing movement within the state as well as reduce the risk of road accidents.

“Niger State has been at the receiving end for years now. Most of the traffic moving cargos to South-West and up North, pass through the state which has left the roads within Minna, the state capital, and other linked roads in bad condition.

“If we can fix these roads it will help ease movement within the state, reduce travel time and risk of accidents. So I can’t wait to see the contractors fully mobilized to sites,” he said.

Bello also revealed that contracts have already been awarded while expressing optimism that work will soon commence on those roads without further delay.

He further thanked the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, the Federal Inland Revenue Service among other bodies involved in the strategic intervention in the state.

It would be recalled that the state was among those to benefit from the strategic intervention of NNPC as approved by the Federal Executive Council, FEC, to reconstruct 21 federal roads in the country.

Out of this number, nine are in North Central with the majority of the roads projects situated in Niger State.
