Tinubu To Flag Off Sokoto-Badagry Super Highway August


The Minister of Works, David Umahi, has assured that the first phase of work on the 1000km Sokoto-Badagry super highway project will be flagged off in Kebbi State by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in August.

While speaking at a stakeholders’s engagement on alignment for Sokoto and Kebbi states’ first and second phases of the highway at the Presidential Lodge in Birnin Kebbi, Umahi said work on the project would commence from the 258km section in the Kebbi axis.

The minister noted that the route of the highway was that of the oldest trans-Sahara trade which was initiated more than 48 years ago but not implemented until the coming of President Tinubu’s administration.

Speaking at the engagement, the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Senator Atiku Bagudu, said, “The country is presently confronting its reality. Some of the economic policies of this administration are new, so the government needs understanding and support from the citizens to achieve its developmental and economic objectives.”

Governor Nasiru Idris, in his remarks, said the president had brought happiness to the people of Kebbi through the highway road project, adding that the project was a testimony of his belief in the aspirations of the people of Nigeria.
