During the last outing, the Infrastructure Committee also visited the ongoing construction of 48km Felegi-Shafini-Tungan Jika road where the Committee’s Chairman, Hon. Ibrahim Balarabe Kagara expressed satisfaction in the ongoing work, especially the construction of a new bridge.
The old locally made bridge which can be seen in the pictures below shows how difficult it is for the people to pass through the passage for years. Travelers were compelled to drop from their vehicles and cross the water on foot to reduce the risk of the vehicle from sinking.
Nor was the road in any proper shape. Before the intervention of Governor Abubakar Sani Bello through RAMP2, it took travelers as long as 6 hours to make a journey of 1 hour or less.
