KANO ASSEMBLY CALLS FOR REMOVAL OF ABANDONED TOLL-GATE
The Kano State House of Assembly has called on the state government to remove the uncompleted toll-gate on Zaria Road, in Kumbotso Local Government Area of the state.
The assembly made the call on Monday following a motion of urgent public importance moved in the house by the member representing Tarauni Constituency, Alhaji Abubakar Zakari.
According to Zakari, the abandoned toll-gate located close to the state’s College of Education has become a death zone for motorists, especially those coming from outside the state.
Zakari said that during the Christmas break, 11 people were killed in the area as a result of the structure.
He said that the call had become necessary to avoid reoccurrence of such accidents.
“I lost 11 people from my constituency as a result of an accident at the toll-gate, therefore, there is the need for its removal.
