The Commissioner said a contract was approved for the reconstruction of 3.35 kilometre Kwanar Gogori in Gogori Town Road in Bagwai local government at the cost of N290.2 million.

The project, when completed, he said, would boost agricultural-cum-commercial activities and ease the transportation of both dry and rainy season’s farm produce, poultry and animal husbandry.

Other projects included the completion of Kanye-Kabo-Dubagau Road at the cost of N1.6 billion.
