While commending the Kaduna State Government led by Governor Nasir el-Rufai for the expansion of the Urban Renewal which has also taken off in Kafanchan, Tsaunin Kura Residents Association (Sabo GRA) has expressed hopes that the deplorable roads in it’s community would soon be attended to.
This was expressed at a press briefing held on Sunday October 18, 2020 at the community.
Reading the text of the statement jointly signed by him and the Secretary General, Barrister Dan Paul Fredericks, President of the community, Comrade (Dr.) Silas Adamu said already, the Governor has mandated the Kaduna Roads Agency (KADRA) to assess their roads.
“This is to brief you that we have been given hope on the roads which for now is our greatest challenge in the community, by the administration of Malam Nasir el-Rufai.
“Our hope stems from the fact that he has mandated the Kaduna Roads Agency (KADRA) to visit our community on assessment, which they have promptly carried out.
“We believe that is a step in the right direction and thousands of members of the community are excited, while praying diligently, to see the commencement of work.
“We as a community are happy and wish to commend Governor el-Rufai for the massive urban renewal projects, which are not just limited to the Kaduna metropolis alone, but has extended to Zaria and Kafanchan.
“The commencement of work in Kafanchan Urban renewal, which was awarded to Rafali Nigeria Limited and Farmtrac Nigeria Limited is another testimony that this administration does not pay lip service, but matches words with action, which further gives hope to.our community that soon our deplorable roads that are causing us untold hardship would soon be awarded,” Comrade Adamu said.
Speaking further, he said that no community can develop without peace
“We appreciate the fact that peaceful co-existence and peace building attracts development as evidenced in the Southern Kaduna Peace Summit, which shortly after it was convened, Kafanchan Urban renewal kicked off.
“We commend the Agwatyap, Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), security agencies and the state government for the success of peace efforts in the state,” he said.
Sabo GRA President therefore, tasked members of the community to keep promoting peaceful co-existence which they have been enjoying.
“Along that thought, we urge residents of the Sabo GRA Community to sustain peaceful co-existence being enjoyed and spread the message of peace to all other communities across the state,” he steessed.
He used this opportunity, to appeal to Governor Nasir el-Rufai to expedite action on their request for roads and drainages, while wishing him good health and wisdom to keep leading the state to prosperity.
