The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Mahmuda Mamman has assured states of the Ministry’s  willingness to collaborate with them.

He made the disclosure while hosting the Executive Governor of Zamfara State, Dr Dauda Lawal at the ministry’s headquarters office in Abuja over the weekend.

 ‘’ The ministry is willing to collaborate and partner with states in order to make life more meaningful for all Nigerians not necessarily  the people of Zamfara state because we are here to serve the interest of the country and we are also  ready to do that,” he said.

While responding to the request of the governor , he assured that the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) will work out a plan to be used as intervention strategy on the Funtua–Gusau road.

“We are touching lives in so many ways and we really want to touch the lives of Nigerians especially the people plying that axis,” he stated.

 Mahmuda instructed the Director, Highways and Reconstruction, Folorunsho Esan of the ministry   to mobilise and put  necessary machinery in place to ensure that work starts from both end of Funtua–Gusau Roads in the  shortest possible time.

The governor, earlier in his  remarks, thanked the permanent secretary for granting his  request despite the short notice , according to a statement from the ministry.

“The reason we are here today is to seek partnership with the ministry in different areas of concern. I am aware of what the ministry is dong, in  touching the lives of the people across the country, l am also aware  that the contract for the ‘dualization’  of  Funtua -Gusau  road has been  signed by the ministry,” he stressed.
