Sokoto State Government has concluded plans to revisit its metropolitan city master plan in view of beautifying the ancient caliphate. Commissioner of Land and Housing, Alhaji Muhammadu Bello Gwiwa, stated this while
briefing journalists yesterday in Sokoto. He explained that government has also decided to make Sokoto attractive to investors and provide adequate housing for indigenes. The commissioner also said government under the leadership of Aminu Waziri Tambuwal will create a heavy truck park outside the state metropolis to decongest the current central park. While revealing that Timber Market will be relocated to western by-pass, Gwiwa maintained that this will checkmate and reduce fire incidents. He also stated that plans are on top gear to build three satellite markets in the three major entry points into the caliphate. “Explaining that one is going to be located at Kware, another through Kwanawa, while the other one will be in Birnin-Kebbi to decongest the existing central market,” he said.
