35km Feeder-Roads Inaugurated In Bokkos LGA of Plateau State
Not less than 35km feeder-roads to be constructed in Bokkos local government have been inaugurated by the Transportation Council boss of the local government council.
Mr Luka Makut, Management Committee Chairman, Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau, on Monday inaugurated the construction of over 35 km feeder-roads across the council.
Our correspondent reports that, the feeder-roads include that of Maiyanga-Tanti-Baba Road, Tanti-Daffo Road and Maikatako-Fanjur-Barkin-Ladi border Road. In summary, this means that the road from Tanti Junction will traverse to Daffo, while that of Maikatako-Fanjur would terminate at the border between Bokkos and Barkin-Ladi. While inaugurating the construction of the feeder-roads network, Makut said the council embarked on the project so as to provide succour to the citizens.
According to him, “We have been disturbed and worried over the suffering and plight of the people of these communities in conveying their farm produce to the markets and also serve as means of communication between the communities. It was based on these cogent reasons that we took a bold step to construct the roads, in spite of our lean resources,” he said.
Makut expressed the hope that, the roads projects, when completed, would cushion the suffering of the affected communities. He assured the citizens of the desire of the management committee to provide them with basic amenities that would better their living conditions.
Mr Makut explained further that, the council was executing the project through direct-labour, in order to cut down cost, considering the prevailing financial situation in the country.
Representative of the construction company, Mr Moses Adikum, assured the chairman of the commitment of the firm to complete the projects within the stipulated period. Responding, Mr Arin Adams, a resident of Tanti-Babba community, commended the management committee for the timely intervention in alleviating the plight of the people.
