Adamawa State Governor, Umaru Fintiri, at the flagging off of the construction of township roads in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, assured residents that the state would witness a turnaround during his administration.
In his remarks, the governor described the flag off as historic and significant, considering the pathetic conditions and neglect which most communities across the state have suffered because of bad roads.
He added that despite the lean resources, the government would make sure that every nook and cranny of the state was provided with the needed development to uplift the standard of living of the people.
Fintiri, who was accompanied by some members of the State Executive Council, revealed that the unpleasant experience of the people as well as the difficulty they faced informed his administration's choice of the flag off of roads in the metropolis.
He promised to remain committed to actualizing his vision and mission of making Adamawa great again.
The Commissioner for Works, Adamawa State, Adamu Atiku, gave a breakdown of the project. Only recently, the state government commenced the construction of 281 kilometres of rural roads in about 15 communities across the state.
He stated that the development, according to the government, will boost the agricultural sector of Adamawa State and expose the state’s economic potentials to people.
