Kano, Nigeria – Kano State Governor, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, on Thursday, flagged off the construction of two access roads in the Dawakin Kudu local government area under the Kano State Agro-pastoral Development Project (KSADP). The projects, Mil Goma – Yankatsare and Rigiyar Gwangwan road network, span a total of 14.728 km and are valued at N2,453,105,743.20. The construction has been awarded to Messrs RADOC Construction JV Limited with a completion period of 12 months.

Funded by the Islamic Development Bank, the Lives and Livelihoods Fund, and the government of Kano State, KSADP aims to construct 70 km of roads connecting various communities across the state at a total cost of N9.97 billion. These roads are intended to facilitate economic activities by improving the movement of people, commodities, and livestock to and from farmlands, markets, and towns.

Speaking at the well-attended ceremony, Governor Abba Yusuf expressed his administration’s commitment to implementing viable projects to improve the quality of life for rural dwellers. “As we promised to work with all our friends, including development partners, this day marks the fruition of another effort between these partners and the Kano State government to resolve some of the nail-biting problems facing the state,” he stated.

The governor highlighted that the road projects, undertaken in collaboration with development partners, span across the three senatorial zones of the state, aiming to enhance agricultural and rural development. He also thanked the Islamic Development Bank and the Lives and Livelihoods Fund for their support, expressing hope that the partnership would continue to grow stronger.

KSADP, now in its third year of implementation, has been instrumental in transforming the lives of thousands of beneficiaries through impactful initiatives. With a core mission to alleviate poverty by 30 percent and strengthen food and nutrition security, KSADP aims for a significant 50 percent reduction in the number of individuals affected by chronic food shortages.

This ambitious endeavor directly impacts 1,260,000 beneficiaries across Kano State, focusing on the sustainable development of selected livestock and crop value chains. The project’s scope extends to smallholder farmers actively engaged in chosen agricultural value chains, as well as input suppliers, service providers, processors, marketers, and traders.

By fostering collaboration and driving innovation within the agricultural sector, KSADP is making substantial strides towards fostering economic development and resilience within Kano State.
