By Abdulyassar Abdulhamid
Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State will join President Muhammadu Buhari for the official flag-off of the construction of the Phase one of the Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano (AKK) Gas Pipeline project.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Malam Abba Anwar, said the event is slated for tomorrow, Tuesday, 30th June.
The project which will take off from Ajaokuta in Kogi state, through the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Niger state, Kaduna state and terminates in Kano state, will be flagged off by the president via video conference.
According the statement, when completed, the project would revive all the ailing and suffocating industries in both Kano and Kaduna states, among other benefits.
Commending President Buhari for the project, Governor Ganduje said: “This project will bounce back the glorious days of Kano industrialisation era, with good and uninterrupted power supply. Gas will also be very much available.”
The project, according to the governor, is a clear testimony of the federal government’s commitment in creating employment opportunities and saving industries, “for the overall development of the country,”
