Kano state government has said that contrary to insinuations, the N4.5bn Underpass and Flyover project is peoples’ oriented project.
The State Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, who stated this in a statement, said those criticising the project were doing so out of ignorance.
“The insinuation is a semblance of ignorance of government work by some selfish individuals to discredit the people-oriented Dangi Roundabout underpass flyover project through unsubstantiated allegations,” he said.
Garba added that the project which was approved at the 111th state Executive Council Meeting was aimed at curtailing chaotic traffic situation in the city.
“Unfortunately, some disgruntled elements in our midst because of their political interest are accusing government of executing this gigantic project outside budgetary allocation,” he said.
The commissioner urged then people of Kano state to ignore any politician that campaigns against meaningful project.
