As part of efforts to enhance economy, the Yobe State Government has spread its tentacles to neighbouring Niger Republic in a drive that is aimed at "cementing cordial and diplomatic relationship" with the neighbouring country and development of border communities in northern part of the state.

This was disclosed by Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam's Director of Press Affairs to at the Government House n Damaturu, the state capital during an interactive session with newsmen.

He said the completed Trans-Saharan road project, which covered a total distance of over 300 kilometres would also facilitate commercial activities between Yobe state and its West African neighbouring countries.

His words: "This international road that cuts across the desert in eight council areas of Yobe state will also serve over 200 communities engaged in farming, livestock rearing, fishing and other economic activities in some of the oasis that the people rely on for some of their basic needs of life.

"The trans-saharan road project also links four council headquarters of Geidam, Yusufari, Yunusari, Karasuwa and Machina, a border town with Niger Republic."

Bego also added; "Governor Ibrahim Gaidam has built more roads than the total number of roads built since the State was created back in 1999. From; Potikum to Garin Alkali; Kaliyari-Bayamari-Gaidam; Bayamari-Yunusari; Gaidam-Bukarti; Maiduwa-Gadaka; Potiskum-Danchuwa; Jajimaji-Karasuwa. All these are roads built by Governor Ibrahim Gaidam.

"We have also many road projects that are currently ongoing, despite the prevailing economic and security challenges. From Damaturu-Buni-Yadi Madgza road which is 70 kilometres long; Gadaka-Siminti-Godowoli.

"There were also a slew of roads and drainages built by Governor Gaidam in Damaturu, Potiskum, Gashu'a, Nguru and Gaidam - our major towns and, as the Governor has promised, more towns, such as Dapchi headquarters of Bursari LG, will come on stream going forward.

"All these were done in the Governor's first term in office (May, 2011-2015). All these projects are verifiable on the ground."
