The Emir of Talata-Mafara, Alhaji Bello Muhammad-Barmo, has urged the Zamfara government to reduce the housing deficit facing the city of Talata-Mafara.
Muhammad-Barmo made the call in Talata-Mafara on Tuesday, at a Zamfara West city council meeting on the state’s 2021 appropriations bill.
“We know the state government’s plan in the 2021 budget to provide 10,000 houses across the state. We want the government to include the city of Talata-Mafara among the beneficiaries of such projects ”.
“We have the challenge of housing considering the higher institutions located in the Talata-Mafara Town, such as the State University and the Polytechnic,” he said.
The emir also called for the establishment of a modern veterinary hospital in the area.
“We noted in the 2021 budget, the provision for the establishment of veterinary hospitals in the Kaura-Namoda and Gusau areas, we want the Talata-Mafara area to benefit from that project,” he said.
Muhammad-Barmo said that the Emirates will support and cooperate with the current administration in the state to provide meaningful projects to the people. He urged people to continue praying against the security challenges in the state.
The Emir thanked the state government for the meeting, which he said would involve grassroots people in governance.
