The governments of Sokoto and Zamfara have collaborated to fix the 214km Sokoto-Gusau federal highway to ease traffic challenges on the road.

Imam Imam, spokesperson for Sokoto governor Aminu Tambuwal, said in a statement on Monday that the road cost N100m to fix.

He said the road which span through Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina to Kaduna states was repaired to alleviate the sufferings of users and checkmate road traffic accidents.

The spokesperson said Zamfara governor Abdulaziz Yari fixed the Gusau-Tureta local government portion of the road, while Tambuwal provided funds for the route between Tureta local government and Sokoto town.

“The two states combined resources to fix the road as it is the main link between their capitals and other parts of the country. It is one of the most important roads in the North West because it connects to other routes leading to neighbouring Niger Republic,” the statement read.

“The important thing is to achieve zero porthole on the crucial route and this has been achieved. The effort has enhanced safety of vehicles and commuters. It has also improved movement of goods especially agricultural products because it is a major agric zone in the federation.”
