Gombe government signs N12 billion erosion control contract

The Gombe State Government has signed a NOK 12 billion contract with Triacta Nigeria Limited for the construction of a 21km gully erosion control project in six towns within Gombe city.

The contract signing ceremony between the state government and Triacta held in Gombe on Wednesday was observed by Gombe State Governor, Inuwa Yahaya.

At the ceremony, Yahaya said the project is one of the largest capital projects in state history.

He defined the project as an important step towards the restoration of agricultural and environmental areas in the state that have been destroyed by gully erosion and environmental degradation.

Gombe state is considered as the erosion center of the Northeast region.

“For decades, we have seen the devastating effects of canyon erosion threaten farmland, displace communities and jeopardize the future of our environment.

“The signing of this agreement to control gully erosion through London-Maidorowa, Malam-Inna Uro Rade, Uro Kesa, Arawa and Kagarawal demonstrates our unwavering commitment to protect and protect the environment and people’s livelihoods. It shows determination,” the governor said.
