A driver from Zamfara state, lauded the project, saying it will go a long way in not only boosting economic activities in the region, but also in neighbouring Niger Republic.

He expressed the hope that the construction companies will execute a “qualitative job” that will stand the test of time.

Another respondent, a Mallam Mohammed lawal, a passenger, said he’s been plying the road from Zaria to Sokoto for the past 10 years, and described the project as a “game changer” in the transport sector of the zone and the wider country.
