Umahi excited by quality, pace of work on Lagos-Calabar highway

Minister of Works, David Umahi has expressed satisfaction with the quality and progress of work on the Lagos-Calabar coastal highway.

The minister described the project as one of the most critical in the works sector.

He promised that since the project is a critical national economic pillar, the government would prioritise the complementary economic services that would add value to it.

The first phase of the highway is scheduled to be completed within 36 months.

Umah urged Nigerians to sustain their faith in the Renewed Hope administration of President Bola Tinubu.

The minister said the government was on course to birth a road infrastructure revolution.

A statement yesterday in Abuja by the ministry’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Ben Bem Goong, said Umahi announced that the Federal Government was interfacing with all the states the highway passes through to provide land for the establishment of economically viable towns along the route.

The minister said this would enable communities proximate to the highway to reap the full economic benefits associated with the project.
