No fewer than N100 million has been spent in fixing the Gusau-Sokoto road by both governments of Zamfara and Sokoto states collectively, statement by Sokoto governor’s spokesperson, Imam Imam has confirmed.

The money was spent to complete  the repairs of the 214 km Sokoto-Gusau federal highway to ease transportation challenges encountered by commuters plying that route.

According to the statement issued in Sokoto yesterday by Imam Imam, the road connects Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina and Kaduna states.

“The two states combined resources to fix the road as it is the main link between their capitals and other parts of the country. It is one of the most important roads in the North West because it connects to other routes leading to neighbouring Niger Republic,” the statement added.

Imam Imam said while Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara beared the responsibility for fixing the Gusau -Tureta portion of the road, Tambuwal’s government provided funds for the fixing of the route between Tureta and Sokoto town.

The statement added that a submission will be made to the federal government for the refund of the money since the highway belongs to it.

“The important thing is to achieve zero porthole on the crucial route and this has been achieved. The effort has enhanced safety of vehicles and commuters. It has also improved movement of goods especially agricultural products because it is a major agriculture zone in the federation,” the statement added.
