The Lawmaker representing the people of Fofure/Song Federal constituency at the National Assembly,Hon Sadiq Ibrahim Dasin revealed that the Federal Government has approved the construction of Yola-Fofure-Gurin road.
Dasin said that the approval for the construction of the road which is approximately 56km was awarded to Messrs Wiz China Worldwide Engineering Limited in the sum of N13,643,670,884.81 with a completion time frame of 12 months.
According to him the road construction is the aftermath of a motion he raised in 2016 and the efforts he put in capturing the road in 2017 budget.
“My insistence that the road can not and must not be done by FERMA in my lifetime no matter the political consequences on me or my party will now bear fruits. I take full responsibility for thwarting the efforts of those of us who have been making money on the road almost yearly at the expense of our community.” Dasin said
Ibrahim who used his Facebook page to tell the world his political strides in making the work a reality said the road will now be a standard carriage way of 7.3m wide asphalt road and the shoulders will now be 2.75m wide on both sides end to end.
We have been capturing the road in the our national budgets from 2017 through 2018 and in 2019 budget.
While thanking the former SGF Babachir Lawan (with who we started it all), the current SGF Boss Gida Mustapha, the FCT Minister Muhammad Musa Bello and Sarki Abba for their efforts in making the final approval he said he can’t rest until the motion he moved for construction of the Jabbi Lamba – Malabu – Farang – Belel – Sorau road, which is in the budget, is implemented.
Sadiq said is on his toes with is other colleagues to the implementation of the motion he jointly moved with Hon. Uztaz Yunus of Yamaltu/Deba federal constituency and Hon. Philip Gutuwa of Guyuk/Shelleng federal constituency for the construction of the road from Gombe – Guyuk – Dumne – Song – Zummo is done.
“Though this road is not in the budget yet, it is on record that the motion for it had been moved by the 3 of us and approved by the House.” He said
“The federal road from Mararaba Wuro Ardo – Chigari – Karlahi – Koma – Kojoli – Jada is what is uppermost in my mind now. The motion for it has not been moved yet.” He added
