Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello on Monday reassured rural dwellers in state of his commitment to infrastructural development of their communities.
He gave the assurance at Kampani Bobi in Mariga Local Government Area of the state while flagging off the construction and rehabilitation of rural roads under the second phase of implementation of Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAMP-2) in the state.
The Governor said his administration was committed to rural development in order to improve the socio-economic status of the people living in the grassroot.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary, Jibrin Baba Ndace quoted the governor as saying “government will not relent in its efforts at ensuring that life in the rural areas becomes a thing of envy by the people living in the urban centres such that rural-urban migration can be reduced to the minimum”.
Under the RAMP-2 project, the governor said 403 kilometres of rural roads will be constructed across the three senatorial zones of the state as a follow up to the 176 kilometres of rural roads rehabilitated under the first phase of the project.
