The Katsina State government under the leadership of RT. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari has awarded the contract of a whooping sum of money amounting to N136,112,645.56 for the contract of upgrading of Katsina township streetlights.
The Governor stated this during his presentation of the 2017 budget to the state assembly.
KATSINA POST checks revealed that the contract work for the said project has already picked up in some major streets in the Katsina metropolis.
However, many residents are of the opinion that the said project is just another case of misplaced priority by the government.
According to them, street light has no any meaningful benefit to the common man looking for what to eat or the money to pay for his children school fees.
