Federal Executive Council approves USD 53 million for road projects in the FCT, Oyo and Kano States.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, revealed to the State House correspondents that the road construction project for the three states has been approved.
“The second memorandum we presented was for the award of three roads in Igboho-Oloko-Agbonle in Oyo State and Gulu to Yaba town between the Federal Capital Territory and Niger State as well as Sharada to Madobi and Danbaure in Kano State. Council approved these roads for USD 19 million for the first one in Oyo, USD 20 million for the second one in Niger/FCT and USD 12 million for the third one in Kano,” said Mr Fashola.
Mr. Fashola explained that the council has also been intimated on the 524 roads currently ongoing across all the states of the federation, adding that 43 internal roads are being constructed in Federal Universities, out of which 10 have been completed.
He further disclosed that the Council also approved over USD 1 million for the completion of Efalaye-Erimo-Iwaraja road linking Ekiti and Osun states which had been awarded since 2009 and has reached 85% completion.
“The first memorandum was to approve the change of rates with respect to the Efalaye-Erimo-Iwaraja road linking Ekiti and Osun states. That road was awarded since 2009 and the contractor has achieved about 85% of the work so we are trying to complete that road, it had been slowed down by previous years of insufficient budget. During that period the price at which it was awarded and today’s material prices have altered significantly,” said Mr Fashola.
