KADUNA — The Kaduna State government is to build 100 housing units at the Zango Kataf local government of the state.

Governor Mohammed Namadi Sambo of Kaduna State, who made this known, said this was part of the proposed 1000 housing units to be built by the government in its efforts to bring succor to civil servants as well as spread amenities to all parts of the state.

Sambo spoke when he visited the local government area in continuation of his state wide tour to commission and flag off projects executed by his administration and the local government councils.

He said the location of the 100 units in Zango Kataf would not only give a sense of belonging to the people of the Southern Kaduna but bring about more unity in the state.

According to Sambo, the Luduga grazing reserve located in Kachia local government of southern Kaduna would also be rehabilitated to enable pastoralists have a place to feed their animals and also improve their economic well being.

The projects commissioned by the governor in the area included the newly completed local government secretariat in Zonkwa, a primary health centre at Abet and another electrification project in Fadan Kaje.

Sambo also visited Jema’a and Jaba local government areas where he commissioned and flagged off some projects.

At Jema’a, the governor commissioned the grains silos in Kafanchan built by the state government to ensure food security in the state as well as the medical equipment and ICAP HIV/AIDS treatment/comprehensive laboratory at the General Hospital and also laid foundation stone for the construction of student’s hostel at the School of Nursing , Kafanchan.
