Jonathan commissions N2.5 billion bridge in Kano

President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has commissioned the N2.5 Billion Kano-Zaria Road bridge, naming it after late Emir Ado Bayero.

Mr. Jonathan said, “We are naming the bridge after Ado Bayero because as a leader who served his people with dignity and never toyed with his throne, he earned huge respect that we will always remember him by and immortalized him for.”

Mr. Jonathan noted that this was one of the most important roads in Nigeria and the bridge was a critical infrastructure aimed at promoting trade, commerce and industry. 

“Kano is known for this trade and commerce beyond Nigeria, beyond West Africa,” Mr. Jonathan said. “That is why it has become a state that needs to work with the Federal Government so that Federal Government will work with it to add value and improve the quality of life  of the people. 

“We love Kano people. We will work with you so that we get the groundnut pyramids back and add value to the people. That is why we are very happy that Kano People believes in the ruling party the Peoples Democratic Party). There are some wrong movements in the state and when we have the elections we will use it to correct these wrong movements.”

    The Nigerian economy has been growing faster than South Africa’s. Imagine what Nigeria could do for Africa if it was also free of Boko Haram’s violence. Thank you President GEJ for keeping to your words. VOTE GEJ FOR 2015. #GEJ4NAIJA

  • Spoken word
