Gov Mohammed Umaru Bago of Niger State has requested approval from the federal government to reconstruct the Lapai-Gulu-Muye Federal road to ease vehicular movement of goods and services in the state.

The Governor stated this during the groundbreaking ceremony of the construction of the township roads in Lapai Local Government Area.

According to him, ”I want to reassure you of my unwavering determination to transform Niger State and therefore, we are also seeking the support of the FIRS/NNPC through a tax credit scheme for the road project in addition to the ones recently granted”.

He also disclosed the State Government’s plans to renovate the General Hospital Lapai and revive the waterworks project that the Late former Governor of the State, Abdulkadir Abdullahi Kure started from Katcha to Agaie and to Lapai.

On his Agricultural revolution, the Governor urged the people to key into mechanised agriculture, adding that the government would provide the needed support for their benefit.

Also, in Agaie LG, where he also performed the groundbreaking of township roads, Bago told the residents that plans are underway for the construction of other roads in the local Government, including the road leading to Baro Port.

He also assured the people that Agaie General Hospital will be renovated and equipped for improved healthcare service delivery, while the central market will be given a facelift to improve socio-economic activities.

In their separate remarks, the Lapai LG Chairman, Mohammed Musa Kirikpo and his counterpart from Agaie Alh. Ibrahim Sayuti Aliyu commended the Governor for extending his infrastructural development agenda to rural areas.
