The President spoke yesterday at the inauguration of the rebuilt Shinkafi-Yandaki-Gafiya—Abdallawa-Dankaba road in Katsina, as part of activities marking his visit to the state.

He said the special attention his administration gave infrastructure would be intensified, since the investments had been justified with more people benefiting from them.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, the President said: “Infrastructure is vital to economic development. As you are aware, this administration has given special attention to infrastructural transformation of our country.

“This is in consonance with the Change philosophy of the administration. Such projects and programmes form part of our contribution to national development, which are tangible for all to see.”

President Buhari lauded the strategy Governor Aminu Bello Masari’s administration adopted to make roads smooth throughout the year for citizens.

He added: “We all know that the economy of Katsina State is agrarian. Our wealth is farming and livestock rearing. Hence, there is need to open it up through and across all communities to maximally tap the abundant agricultural and livestock resources the state is endowed with.”

Masari said the government “had all along been mindful of the need for infrastructural development across the nooks and crannies of the state”.

The governor said the decision had “efficiently and effectively facilitated smooth movement of people, goods and services on trade and commerce, not only within Katsina State but across other neighbouring states”.

He added that the economy of the state and wellbeing of the people had improved with the focus on infrastructure.

President Buhari will inaugurate more projects in the state today.
