My administration will ensure that FG contracts for reconstruction of Minna-Tegina and Tegina-Kontagora roads are completed -Gov. Umar Bago
Niger State Governor, Hon. Mohammed Umaru Bago, has said that his administration will ensure the contracts awarded by the federal government for the reconstruction of Minna-Tegina and Tegina-Kontagora roads are completed.
The governor stated this during Sallah homage to the Emir of Kontagora, Muhammad Barau Mu'azu II, at his Palace in Kontagora.
He noted that the two contracts were awarded during the last administration and emphasised that the contracts were on course and that his government would put pressure on them until they were completed.
The Governor, who was conferred with the traditional title of Gamji Kontagora, called on the people of the emirate to rally around his administration to achieve the desired objectives for the benefit of all.
The Sarkin Sudan of Kontagora, Muhammad Barau Mu'azu II, had earlier expressed his appreciation to the governor for the visit and for showing commitment to collaborating with traditional rulers with a view to providing good governance.
The monarch prayed for the success of the Umaru Bago-led administration and later visited the cemetery of the late Emirs of Kontagora Kingdom, where he prayed for the repose of their souls.
