In a bid to improve infrastructure and enhance connectivity within the state, the Adamawa State Executive Council has given the green light for the reconstruction of a 44km road. This road, which runs from the permanent orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Damare, near the state capital, Yola, to Borong, a major community in the Demsa local government area, is set to undergo a major transformation.
The feeder road, which traverses two local government areas – Girei and Demsa, is slated to be reconstructed at a cost of N836 million. The State Commissioner of Education, Dr. Umar Pella, revealed this information to the press following a meeting of the State Executive Council (SEC) at the Government House in Yola.
According to Dr. Pella, the contract for the reconstruction project has been awarded to Hydro Source and Resource Nigeria Limited, with an expected completion timeline of 12 months. This development is a significant step towards improving the state’s infrastructure and ensuring better road connectivity for residents and commuters.
Furthermore, the SEC meeting, which was presided over by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, also saw the approval of a variation contract worth over N117 million for the construction of a modern laboratory at the Specialist Hospital in Yola. Dr. Pella clarified that the initial cost of the project was over N578 million, and the variation is necessary to accommodate the increase in the cost of building materials.
These decisions underscore the state government’s commitment to prioritizing infrastructure development and the provision of quality healthcare facilities for the benefit of the people. With a focus on improving road networks and enhancing healthcare services, the Adamawa State Government is taking proactive steps to address the needs of its citizens.
The approval of the N836 million reconstruction project for the 44km road signifies a significant investment in the state’s infrastructure, with the potential to positively impact the lives of residents in the affected areas. As the project progresses, it is expected to create employment opportunities, facilitate smoother transportation, and contribute to overall socio-economic development in the region.
The reconstruction of the road is poised to bring about tangible benefits, including improved accessibility for communities, enhanced connectivity for businesses, and a boost to the overall development of the state. By prioritizing such infrastructure projects, the government is demonstrating its commitment to fostering growth and progress in Adamawa State.
