No new road will be constructed until existing road projects are completed - Fashola

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola while speaking to State house correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting at the state house Abuja, yesterday, said that the Federal government will not embark on the award and construction of any new road project until existing road projects from the last administration have all been completed.
Fashola said the last administration awarded 206 road contracts worth about N2 tillion which have not been paid for.

He said that roads that are of great economic value such as the Lagos-Ibadan expressway where important items such as Fuel or Food are to be transported to all parts of the country, are of topmost importance to the government.
He stated:
“What we have done was first to say that we would not award any new road contract. We would deal with the over 206 roads that have been awarded but not funded for over three years.”
