President Muhammadu Buhari has commissioned several multi-billion naira projects at his Katsina home state on Thursday.
The projects commissioned include two underpass bridges located in Kofar Kaura and Kofar Kwaya areas, the remodelled Katsina General Hospital, and the new Katsina Revenue House.
Other projects include the rehabilitated Katsina Water Supply Booster Station, Katsina Metrological Institute of Nigeria (Federal), and the Darma Rice Mill (Private).
At the Kofar Kaura underpass bridge, the President who was accompanied by Governor Aminu Masari was welcomed and briefed by the State Commissioner for Works, Housing and Transport, Tasi’u Dahiru Dandagoro.

Dandagoro informed the President that the underpass bridge is one of the three interchange road projects embarked upon by the present state administration and is to cost the government about N10.1 billion.
He said the three projects would help ease traffic into and out of the state, especially during festive periods.
Shortly after commissioning the projects, the president along with Masari and other guests, moved to the presidential wing of the Government House to have lunch.
President Buhari is also expected to commission several other projects on Friday, including the remodelled General Hospital, Musawa, Government Day Secondary School (GDSS) Musawa, and Gora-Makauraci-Mallamawa Road.
Other projects are the rehabilitated and asphalted Sandamu-Baure-Babban Mutum Road as well as Gurjiya-Sandamu-Karkarku Road.
