Fashola clarifies Lagos-Ibadan Expressway delay

The Federal Government has clarified why the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway project is being delayed.

According to them, the delay is due to the drainage channel being constructed at the Ibadan axis of the ever-busy road by the Oyo State Government.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, said “The Oyo State Government is building a drainage channel across the road. So, we are having difficulties because the contractor has slowed down and we have to slow down too.”

However, Fashola said that the construction of the Second Niger Bridge and rehabilitation of the Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano Dual Carriageway had been completed.

He added that while 12 road projects covering about 896 kilometers had been completed and inaugurated, 83 in Federal Government-owned tertiary institutions were being rehabilitated.

The minister spoke at the inaugural edition of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration Scorecard 2015-2023 Series in Abuja.

The event which features ministers and other top government officials was organized by the Ministry of Information and Culture to showcase the achievements of the All Progressives Congress(APC) administration as it winds down.
