Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Rakiya A. Muham­mad, Sokoto

A civil so­ci­ety group, Ur­ban­iza­tion of Nigeria As­so­ci­a­tion, has hailed the Sokoto State govern­ment over what it called up­grad­ing of the state me­trop­o­lis with so­lar pow­ered traf­fic lights, road names sig­nage and CCTV sur­veil­lance.

In a state­ment, the group’s co­or­di­na­tor, Mr. Karim Ab­dul­lahi, noted that Sokoto now wears a new look and com­mended the con­trac­tors that han­dled the project.

“We are in­deed sat­is­fied that Sokoto State govern­ment has taken con­struc­tive steps to mod­ern­ize the me­trop­o­lis. In ad­di­tion, tax pay­ers can see the good things their money has brought them, we there­fore com­mend the gover­nor, Al­haji Aliyu Wa­makko for these gi­ant strides,” he said.

The co­or­di­na­tor fur­ther called on the state govern­ment to ex­tend the in­stal­la­tion of traf­fic light to other ar­eas of Sokoto, adding that as the pop­u­la­tion in­creases, there will be more pres­sure on the traf­fic in the me­trop­o­lis and en­vi­rons.
