The rehabilitation and construction of the Federal Highway connecting Tambuwal-Yauri-Kontagora-Makera road is ongoing with the project currently around Ganjige Village in Aliero LGA of kebbi state.
The Emir of Yauri Dr. Zayyanu Abdullahi has at different times made appeals for the rehabilitation of the road. In March 2016, he made another passionate appeal when Governor Bagudu paid a courtesy visit to him at his palace during an inspection tour of the rice farms in the area. The Governor promised to take it up with the Federal Government to expedite the reconstruction.
The completed project is expected to boost transport and economic activity within Kebbi state most especially in the transportation of people, livestock and agricultural produce. It is a major road that links the state to other parts of the country through Niger State. Most goods from other states are brought into Kebbi through this road.
