Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Fintiri has flagged off two bridges in Yola, the state capital, awarded to Triacta Nigeria Limited at the cost of N9.4 billion.
At the ceremony yesterday, the governor said that the flag off put paid to speculations that his administration lacked the resources to embark on such gigantic projects.He pointed out that his government would continue to disappoint unbelievers in God and the power of his administration to lift the face of the state.
“This event marks a major milestone in the ‘Fresh Air’ administration’s commitment to actualise its key campaign promise of vigorously undertaking an urban renewal that will make Jimeta, Yola and other towns in the state models to showcase.
“In keeping with this obligation, government has already commenced the construction of roads in Michika and Madagali towns, while roads and health infrastructure in Yola South, Numan, Fufore and other councils follow,” he added.
The governor stated that the construction of the two flyovers and underpass were the flagship of his administration’s urban renewal and development agenda, adding that work would continue on Weekly Scope Road, among other township roads earmarked for construction.
The Commissioner for Works and Energy Development, Adamu Atiku, said despite the financial constraints the Fintiri administration was facing, it would not reverse its urban development agenda.
