A former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday inaugurated a 75-kilometre road linking four local government areas in Zamfara.
The News Agency Nigeria reports that the inauguration of the road was part of activities marking the third anniversary of Governor Abdulaziz Yari’s administration.
Buhari said the construction of the road would facilitate economic activities in the area.
He urged the people to support the All Progressives Congress, saying the party was poised to improve the wellbeing of Nigerians.
Earlier in his address, Governor Yari had said the road was constructed at the cost of over N7 billion.
He said the road would enable farmers in the area to engage in large scale farming and the opportunity to transport their produce to markets in urban areas.
Yari pledged that his administration would continue to provide social amenities to the people to enable them benefit from the dividends of democracy. (NAN)
