By Lola Seriki- Idahosa, Kaduna

Biu Forum, a non governmental organization has commended the Federal Government for approving the road construction of Biu- Gombe road construction of about 117 kilometers For the sum of N27,23bn.

In a press statement made available to TraceReporter and signed by  Engr. Ibrahim Usman, chairman board of trustees Biu forum stated that the road has been in deplorable state in the last 20 years.

According to the press statement, ‘ Biu Forum learnt the cheering news that the Federal Government has approved the construction of the Biu-Gombe road of 117 kilometers for the sum of N27.23bn. The road which was constructed in the early 70s has been in a deplorable state in the last 20 years.

“The hardship experienced by commuters plying the road over the years is to say the least horrible. All appeals of the people of Biu and Gombe emirates to the previous administrations to repair the road have fallen on deaf ears.

“The road which connect two commercial towns of Biu and Gombe not only help the movement of people and agricultural goods but also security logistics, personnel and troops of the military formations in Biu and Gombe. Another strategic importance of the road is the access to the hydro power plant of Dadin Kowa and the Biu dam water project.

” Biu Forum therefore, considers it imperative and appropriate to commend the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for listening to the plight of Biu and Gombe people over this road and did the needful.

“We pray and hope that the Federal Ministry of Works will award the contract to a competent and reliable contractor in order to do a good job. Previously, the construction of Biu-Gombe road was awarded to unreliable contractors who only collected mobilization money and disappeared without any appreciable work.

“The Ministry should therefore not only select a competent contractor but fund the project to ensure its completion within the contract period. The Federal Government should also put in place a team that will monitor and evaluate the quality and progress of work to ensure it comply with set standard.

” Biu Forum wishes to appeal to the Government to direct the selected contractor to commence work from the Biu-Kwaya Kusar end,a distance of 45 kilometers but takes a motorist about four hours due to its deplorable state.

“Biu-Gombe road a distance of 117kilometers now takes a motorist about six hours, a journey that usually takes at most one and a half hours when the road was good.

” Biu Forum is a non governmental organization working for the unity, peace and development of Biu Emirate, Borno state and Nigeria.

“Members of the Forum are indigenes of Biu residing all over the country and contributing their quota in all fields of endeavor. Once more, we commend the efforts of Federal Government and all those who made it possible to get this strategic road reconstructed.
