The Federal Government has embarked on the construction of 65-kilometre access roads in Rano, Kibiya and Bunkure Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Kano State in order to encourage agricultural production.
The roads are the 31km Bunkure Road and the 34km Rano-Kibiya Road in Kano State.
A member of the House of Representative, Alhaji Kabir Alhassan-Rurum, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Kano State.
Alhassan-Rurum, who represents the Rano/Kibiya/Bunkure Federal Constituency under the flag of the All Progressive Congress, noted that the road will link Kano to other farming communities in Kaduna, Jigawa and Bauchi States.
He noted that the projects were being executed as part of the Federal Government’s agricultural intervention programme to ease difficulties in the movement of farm produce.
“The road projects will ease transportation difficulties, encourage productivity as well as improve the social and economic wellbeing of the people in the areas,’’ he said.
The lawmaker further disclosed that the Federal Government was supporting the construction of 150 tube wells in the state to encourage all-year-round farming through irrigation.
Plans to distribute water pumps and other inputs to farmers in the area have also been concluded, he said.
