“We also have completed township roads projects across the headquarters of all the 14 local government areas and major towns across the state, Kyambarawa Nahuce road projects, various constructed and renovated primary schools across the state among others.
“We have invited President Muhammad Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, governors, Ministers, Sultan of Sokoto, Islamic scholars and other important personalities within and outside the state to inaugurate some of these projects”, he said.
Liman, who commended contractors who handled the projects, urged communities in the state to assist the government in maintaining them.
