Kano — Kano State government has earmarked over N400 million to construct two-bedroom houses free, for the victims of 2012 flood.
The floods claimed lives and rendered many people homeless in Warawa Local Government Area of the state.
The state governor, Engr. Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso who revealed this during the launch of distribution of relief materials worth millions of naira to the victims of the flood disaster at the government house in Kano explained that each house will cost about N753,000, adding that this is the first phase of the project.
In a statement from his Director of Press, Halilu Ibrahim Dantiye, Kwankwaso said the project is a carefully worked out strategy to provide permanent solution to the flood, as every year, the same problem occurs in low land areas and places very close to river banks.
