The Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani has reaffirmed the commitment of his administration towards rapid development of the state, insisting that the administration will not relent in efforts to revamp infrastructure, build human capacity and promote economic growth of Kaduna state.
Gov. Sani spoke when he commissioned blocks of a 400-bed hostel at Government Girls Secondary School, Kawo and the office complex of Zaria Metropolitan Authority (ZMA), as part of activities to commemorate his 100 days in office.
He said at the commissioning, that the completion of the hostel block project was a fulfillment of the promise made by the state Government and a demonstration of the importance it attached to the excellence of girl education in the state.
During the commissioning of Zaria Metropolitan Authority Complex, he said the authority like its Kaduna and Kafanchan counterparts was designed based on the Abuja model to serve as city managers carrying out statutory roles of the local governments like road construction, waste management and business environment regulation.
“I am delighted to personally open the Zaria Metropolitan Authority office. We set up the three metropolitan authorities in 2021 in Zaria, Kaduna and Kafanchan designed based on the Abuja model and they would function as integrated entities. They are not here to replace the local governments or to control them, they are simply city managers to carry out statutory roles of the local governments. It covers four local government areas Zaria, Sabongari, part of Giwa and Soba.”
