Commuters To Take Another Route After Collapse Of Bridges In Yobe

Mai Mala Buni, the Governor of Yobe State has directed the Ministry of Works to immediately provide an alternative route for communities disjointed during the heavy downpours that submerged some bridges two days ago.

Buni gave the directive when he visited the Katarko Bridge, one of collapsed bridges.

The disjointed communities border Borno and Adamawa State. Moreover, they foster trading ties between the states.

The intervention came two days after WikkiTimes reported the devastating effect of flooding in the state. The flood claimed four people and displaced more than 7,000 households.

However, the governor stated that the Katarko road that links Yobe and Borno with other neighbouring states is very important to the people, hence finding alternative is equally paramount.

He noted that the state government is aware of the disconnected bridges and is ready to reconnect them to ease movement in the communities.

“We have some other roads, especially from Buni Gari to Gulani that also have been cut off. I think it is high time we reconnected back and I’m aware of the effort the military is making to ensure they support us putting a structure that would assist motorists on the road,” he said.
