Kano state Executive Council has approved the state Rural Access Roads Establishment Bill (RARA) 2022 and the state Roads Funds (SRF) 2022 Bill.
With the passage of the bill which the council has also given approval for transmission to the state House of Assembly for possible passage and assent by the governor, the agency would undertake construction and rehabilitation of rural roads and water crossing hydraulic structures.
The state commissioner for information and internal affairs, Malam Muhammad Garba, who briefed newsmen on the outcome of the council’s weekly meeting held at the Africa House, Government House, Kano, said the bills neither constitute a duplication of already existing road and traffic laws or are in conflict with them.
He said the bills if eventually signed into law would facilitate and improve the socio-economic well-being of especially the rural populace engaged in agricultural activities.
Meanwhile, the council has also given approval for the Kano state Anthem Bill 2023 and its transmission to the state Assembly for passage into law.
The Anthem, which has features for which Kano is renowned, included among other things, inspiring and instilling a deep sense of patriotism, pride, and conscious reawakening of virtuous qualities of the founding fathers; passionate objectives of the great sense of macro as well as micro nationalism and pride in the hearts and minds of Kano people.
