23 May, 2017
The Federal Government, African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank are collaborating to construct 700 kilometers of rural roads in Kano State. Mr Ubandoma Umarama, the National Coordinator, Federal Projects Monitoring Unit, told a one-day stakeholders’ workshop in Kano on Monday. The workshop is on identification of intervention areas and selection of high priority rural roads for the AfDB/World Bank-funded RAMP III in Kano State.
Umarama, who was represented by Mr Aminu Mohammed, said the project was an initiative of the federal government, which when completed, would address the challenges faced by rural communities in terms of access roads. According to him, no fewer than seven states are currently benefiting from the initiative which is being funded by the World Bank and the African Development Bank (AfDB). The current benefiting states, the national coordinator said, include Adamawa, Cross River, Enugu, Imo, Kaduna and Osun.
