The Kebbi State Governor, Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, has told a gathering that his administration will not relent in providing basic social amenities to the people, especially the rural communities.

According to a statement that was issued by his Special Adviser (SA) Media, Yahaya Sarki, Governor Bagudu, explained that the road projects were to link the adjoining villages to Bayawa Augie and Argungu which would bolster socioeconomic activities in the areas.

Sarki stated that the governor said: “It would equally facilitate the easy movement of vehicles and transportation of agricultural products, to accessible markets around”.

The Governor who was in company of his Chief of Staff also made a stopover at Sabla Mayaki, Sabla Maisamari, Zabdo and Bore communities.

“He freely interacted with the elated residents of the communities, amidst euphoria, laced with rapturous clapping and singing from children, women, as well young men who were visibly happy with the historic and unprecedented visit by the people’s Governor,” Sarki stated.

The Governor further assured the communities of his intention to address their request for provision of potable water, electricity, fencing of cemetery, renovation of their Jumuat Mosque and the dispensary.

He added saying: “At every community, the Governor sought to find out the immediate basic needs of the people, which were lacking, with a view to addressing them, as soon as possible”.

The leader of the Sablar Mayaki community, Abdullahi Muhammadu, expressed their happiness with the ongoing road construction linking their community, while the Chief Imam, Malan Sule Amadu, led other members of the community in praying for the sustainability of peace and progress of the state.
