A team of the Aides of Rt Hon Yusuf Adamu Gagditoday, carried out assessment visits to some of the Constituency and personal intervention projects sponsored by the member representing Pankshin, Kanke and Kanam in the House of Representatives, spread across the three local government areas that made up the Federal constituency.
The team led by the Director General of Gagdi Campaign Organisation Nde Paul Juryit, includes the lawmaker’s Senior Legislative Aide, Pharm Dagung Haruna Mizim, his PA, Barr Adamu Nuhu and some of his commission and personal aides. They visited some of the major points along Pankshin-Kabwir-Amper-Dengi road where the Member secured allocated the Sum of Sixteen Million Naira (#16,000,000) only to Federal Road Maintainance Agency (FERMA) to embark on the rehabilitation of potholes along the dilapidated road.
Chairmen of NURTW of Pankshin and Kanke and the secretary of the union in Kanam who were all at the road expressed their appreciation to the lawmaker for ameliorating the plight of commuters playing the road, and pledged their continued support and prayers for him to succeed.
It is worthy of note that the contract for the patching of the potholes was awarded to an indigenous firm owned by a contractor from the constituency. This is a significant departure from the past experiences where contracts in the constituency were awarded to outsiders, at the expense of competent indigenous companies.
The team also inspected the ongoing Dr Sunday Jacob Examination Hall at Kanam Development Association (KADA) Special Academy Dengi (the only school that provides free education to orphans and the less previllaged children in Dengi). The committee also inspected a three classroom at GSS Kor, Pankshin LGA.
Earlier during the visit, the team were at GMSS Dengi, the alma mater of Hon Gagdi, to break the news of the siting of a gigantic ICT center, which when completed will be one of the biggest in the whole of North central Nigeria. The Acting Principal of the School, Mr Musa Musawa was full of appreciation for Hon Gagdi for recognizing the school that produced him in 1999, and expressed optimism that the project will be completed in good time.
The team also visited the District Head of Amper Nde Emmanuel Jatau in his office for consultation on the prospect of siting a new project in the district. The visibly elated monarch was full of eulogies to the member for the unprecedented achievements and urged him not to rest on his oars but sustain the memtum for the good of the people of PKK. The royal father showered blessings on Hon Gagdi and prayed fervently for his success.
Many projects are in the pipeline including the citing of a befitting ICT center in one of the higher institutions in Pankshin, grading of rural roads, sinking of hand pump and motorized boreholes as well as construction of town halls, palaces and district offices across the constituency.
Also in the pipeline is the empowerment package for 5 persons per polling unit in all the wards in the three local government areas. This will include distribution of motorcycles, financial grants and other incentives for the peasants to enable them engage in one form of trade or the other.
The committee was unable to visit the fully renovated and furnished 3 classroom block at GSS Dungung in Kanke LGA, as well as the newly constructed Palaces of the Village heads of Kyaram, MunKahl and Sallaman Kanam Palaces. The three palaces were new projects that are already completed and among projects awaiting commissioning by the lawmaker.
The ongoing projects are at various stages of completion, while the foundation laying ceremony for the community Town halls/Skills Acquisition construction at Garam, in Kanke LGA and Tal in Pankshin LGA will soon take place.
We have attached pictures of most of the ongoing and completed projects.
