The government of Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State, despite controversies, has continued to show zeal and focus regarding infrastructure development, and this is evident in the pace at which the Dangi bridge project is being executed.

The project was awarded in March 2018, and was flagged off in April, a month later. During the flag off, the governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, said, “the project would cost N4. 5 billion and to ensure that work does not stop, we decided to pay the contractors 50 percent of the total project cost and the contractor has assured us that it would be completed in ten months time. Our forefathers envisaged Kano as a mega settlement. We shall make their dreams come true by embarking upon projects such as this gigantic one that will make Kano a mega city, at par with its contemporaries elsewhere”.
