All the residents who spoke with journalists could not hide their joy as they are full of praise of the speedy and quality of work done by the contractor, Farmtrac Nigeria limited .
According to them , it takes a government with great level of political will and concern for the citizens to award such gigantic construction works at a rural area such as; Laduga ,Kachia local government area .
Mal. Ja’afar Salihu , Youth Leader, Miyetti Allah ,Kachia Local government Area and Laduga Village said ,”we have lived here for over 30 years without motorable road “.

” The company can compete favourably with any foreign contractor in the area of standard and quality” he noted .
Former Chairman ,Kaduna Revenue Board Ahmad Bako Jibrin,Magajin Gari Laduga said ” “In these days , we rarely can get a reliable contractor that considered standard above personal gains and wealth acquisition.
