“With N5 – N6m, you will build a block of six classrooms each but that excludes the land on which it is to be built because the prices of land vary from place to place. The price you will get in Lagos for a piece of land will not be the same for Owerri or Abuja and even in each city, prices also vary depending on the area,” he said.
With this estimate the N455 million watch can also build about 75 blocks of six classrooms each for pupils, some of whom lack proper classrooms.
The value of the watch is also estimated to be able to provide well equipped 30 primary health centers in his state that would help give better heath care access.
The governor in his visit to Daura, was led by the Chairman of the Progressive Governor forum (PGF). Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State.
Others who made the trip included Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi; Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari; Plateau State Governor, Mr. Simon Lalong; Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai; Nasarawa State Governor, Engr. Abdullahi Sule; Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, who all endorsed the Tinubu-Shettima ticket.
Governor Uzodinma after the meeting described the choice of Shettima as a collective decision saying that the 22 APC governors in the country has already guarantied APC’s victory in the 2023 elections.
