The Exec. Chairman Jema’a Local Government Area, Hon. Peter Danjuma Averik reiterated his government commitment to construct the Gada Biyu to Ninte road in Godogodo chiefdom. Saying, the project is among the priority projects the council earmarked for construction.
Averik made these assertions when a delegation from Ninte community led by the councilor representing Godogodo ward, Hon. Tanko Usman paid him a courtesy visit in his office on Wednesday.
According to Council Chair, “The road and the culvert were already captured in the 2020 budget.” He went further to say, his council could not embark on the project because of the lean financial situation of the local government.
He told the delegation that his council was aware of the deplorable situation of the road and the difficult experience of commuters plying the road especially during the raining season and pleaded with the Ninte people to be patient, promising that the Council would embark on the project as soon as the financial strength of the local government improves.
Earlier, the youth leader of Ninte community Mr Yakubu Dogo who spoke for the delegation said they were in the chairman’s office to thank him for the good works he has been doing in Jema’a local government and to plead with the council to assist the Ninte community by constructing Gada Biyu to Ninte road to ease the difficulty being faced by motorists especially farmers while transporting their farm products to the market.
The youth leader said he was optimistic the road if constructed, would boost both commercial and farming activities in the area there by increasing the general well-being of the people.
Meanwhile, the Jema’a local government chairman Hon Peter Danjuma Averik has directed the councilor representing Godogodo ward Hon Tanko Usman to liaise with the works Department in the local Government to ensure the immediate repairs of the breakdown transformer at Godogodo to enable the people of the area enjoy the benefits of power supply.
The people of Godogodo and environs have been in the dark for the past four months following the breakdown of the transformer as result of overloading.
