The Jega-Kontagora road is one of the oldest roads in the northern part of the country. It was constructed many years before Kebbi State was carved out of the old Sokoto State in 1991. It is the major road that links the state to the southern part of Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja through Kontagora in Niger State. Most goods from other states are brought into Kebbi through this road. The 300 kilometre road stretches through seven local government areas: Jega, Mayanma, Koko/Besse, Shanga and Yauri in Kebbi State, Kuchi in Sokoto and terminates at Kontagora in Niger State.
