Kwankwaso to Build Multi-Storey Park in Kano…Gets NSE Presidential Award


Kano state government will construct the first multi-storey car park in

the state capital at Shahuci area, in addition to two under pass roads at

Gadon Kaya and Kabuga junctions in Kano metropolis, at the cost of

billions of Naira.
The state governor, Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso disclosed this (Monday), in an

address at the Annual General Meeting of the Nigerian Society of

Engineers, NSE, at the National Conference Center, Abuja.

The governor, who received the society's Presidential Merit Award during

the ceremony, announced that his administration has also awarded contract

for a 1.76 km flyover around Abubakar Rimi Market area aimed at easing

congestion. This, he noted, is one of the longest flyover bridges in the

West African sub-regions.
“Another historic project is the Jakara river project. This is a 6.67km

dual carriageway being constructed on top of the river using buried

circular conduits and an asphaltic concrete on top with streetlights and

traffic lights'', Governor  Kwankwaso revealed.
These, he pointed out, are some of the several life-changing projects

being executed by his administration in the last two and half years, which

should be of great interest to Nigerian engineers.

On the honour bestowed on him by the NSE, the governor said it is

gratifying and a testimony that his professional colleagues recognize his

modest contribution to the development of the engineering profession.

Governor Kwankwaso said the challenges he faced as an engineer have

strengthen him in coping with many obstacles he faced in the last 20 years

as a politician and have helped him in initiating many developmental

policies and projects in Kano
