Katsina District Head Begs Govt to Fix Gora-Ketare-Kankara Road
POLITICS DIGEST- Communities in Ketare District of Kankara Local Government Area have called on the Katsina State Government to rehabilitate the dilapidated Gora-Ketare-Kankara road.
They made their appeal in a letter addressed to the Managing Director of Katsina State Road Maintenance Agency, KASAROMA, Engr. Sirajo Yazid Abukur, which was made available to newsmen in Katsina.
Presenting the letter on behalf of the communities, Kanwan Katsina and District Head of Ketare, Alhaji Usman Bello Kankara, explained that some portions of the road were washed away by downpour, while the bridges are under serious threat of possible collapse.
Alh. Bello Kankara said the road that links some very important communities in Malumfashi and Kankara local government needs urgent attention.
