Kano State Government has declared that Tamburawa in Dawakin Kudu Local Government Area along Zaria Road as the planning location for the siting of the proposed gas industrial layout under the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC’s) Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano pipeline project.

The State Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba who announced this while briefing newsmen, said the state Executive Council gave the approval at its weekly meeting held at the Government House, Kano.

Garba said the approval was given to the state government NNPC-AKK Pipeline Project Delivery and Gas Industrialization Committee (KNSG-PDIC) to set up its planning location at Tamburawa adjacent to Challawa Water Works where the Kano/AKK Terminal Gas station is proposed to be built.

He stated that while a draft of the proposed layout has been produced, the council directed the state Bureau for Land Management to liaise with the committee and come up with final documents for the new industrial layout.

The commissioner also revealed that the council has ratified the award of contract for the reconstruction of Challawa Industrial Layout Road network at the cost of N393, 237, 697.00 million.

He pointed out that the road is of vital economic importance to the economy of the state in view of its proximity to the ongoing construction of Dala Inland Dry Port at Zawachiki that is expected to impact on the development of manufacturing and industrial activities when it commences operation.

The council, he added, has given approval for the release of N23, 883, 464.45 million to the state Radio Corporation for the supply and installation of dehydrator, binary power supply and exciter for its transmitters at Jogana Transmission Station.

Malam Garba noted that the two components, which are essential items for the effective functioning of the transmission, have all gone faulty beyond repairs.
