Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has commissioned 361-km rural roads constructed by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri in Adamawa State.
Mr Matawalle’s Special adviser on Media and Communications, Zailani Bappa, in a statement on Wednesday, said the commissioning followed an invitation by Mr Fintiri.
According to Mr Bappa, the governor was also in the state to witness projects executed by Mr Fintiri in conjunction with the World Bank across the 21 local government areas of the state.
Mr Bappa noted that Mr Matawalle performed the commissioning at Kuvu-Gaya of Hong Local Government during a ceremony attended by dignitaries from both Zamfara and Adamawa states.
While commissioning the roads, according to the statement, Mr Matawalle commended Mr Fintiri for developing the rural areas, urging him to always remain the forthright individual he is known to be.
Mr Matawalle, therefore, appealed to the people of Adamawa State to continue giving Governor Fintiri the necessary support, “so as to continue developing the state and to comfortably render them durable and efficient social services”.
He said: “I have known your Governor as a clean-hearted gentleman whose mission in politics is to uplift the lives of the people.
“You must shun the propaganda of the opposition and support him to better your lives,” Mr Matawalle stressed.
Speaking earlier, Mr Fintiri explained that the roads have 19 water crossings, saying that these crossings have now opened up numerous communities in the state.
