Yobe State Governor, Alhaji Mai-Mala Buni, has flagged off the construction of Buni-Yadi township road, a former enclave of Boko Haram.

Buni-Yadi, at the peak of the Boko Haram crisis was one of the few local governments captured in Yobe State.

The governor, disclosed during the flag off ceremony of the road on Wednesday that the township road project is a fulfilment of one of the promises that he made during the electioneering campaign and at his inauguration.

He said that the the four kilometres road will have an eight-kilometre long drainage line and will be built through direct labour by the Ministry of Works and Transport at the total cost of N673.5 million.

The governor urged the beneficiary community to cooperate with the construction team from the Ministry of Works, Transport and Energy and to “claim the ownership of the project from inception to completion and to the maintenance of the drainages”.

“I have made policy statements that I would consolidate on the execution of road projects to open up more communities and build rural feeder roads to ease the movement of agricultural produce, livestock and other services to enhance social-economic development”, he said.

He added that: “We also intend to execute some other road projects in phases within the limits of resources at the disposal of the government.”

The governor revealed that the next tranche of township roads will be built in Babbangida and Damagum towns, headquarters of Tarmuwa and Fune local governments respectively.
