Commissioned Lagos-Ibadan rail will make Kano a commercial hub in West Africa – Ganduje GANDUJE

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has said the commissioned Lagos/Ibadan Railway line which links Kaduna to Kano, will benefit the ancient city more than any other state of the federation.

Governor Ganduje, who was flagging off the Kano, Katsina to Sokoto reconstruction road projects facilitated by Senator Barau Jibrin representing Kano North Senatorial District, Thursday, said the amount of projects facilitated by President Muhammadu Buhari for the benefit of Kano could not be counted.

“For example, the Lagos/Ibadan Railway which is billed to come to Kaduna to Kano and to Katsina up to Niger Republic will champion the returning of Kano to the Commercial Nerve center of West Africa,” he said.

Governor Ganduje, who was overwhelmed by the Kano to Dayi reconstruction road projects, assured that his government is ready to settle compensations resulting from the project.

Senator Barau Jibrin said that the road project was a subject of campaign promises been fulfilled by both Buhari, Ganduje and himself, adding that the people have been clamoring for the rehabilitation of the road as a result of insecurities, incessant accidents which crippled their economic activities.

The Senate Appropriation Committee Chairman added that the project is expected to be completed as at when scheduled, commending Buhari and his cabinet members who assented to the memo seeking for Kano-Dayi reconstruction road projects.
