All ongoing and abandoned projects in the country will be completed within 3 years, by the Federal Government, says Minister of Power, Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola.
Speaking on Saturday after inspecting work at the Loko-Oweto Bridge which connects Loko and Oweto communities in Nasarawa State and Benue – Fashola said the completion of government projects would result in the creation of jobs and businesses.
“The Federal Government of Nigeria and President Muhammadu Buhari have expressed very clear commitment to finish the ongoing and abandoned projects.”
“We are focusing on completion of ongoing projects; this is one of the many ongoing projects. Lagos-Ibadan expressway is one of them; Kano-Maiduguri is one of them; Ilorin-Jebba is one of them and the Second Niger Bridge is one of them.”
“All those projects now, the contractors are moving back to sites and work is beginning. Gradually over the next three years we would complete many of them.”
“You will see those who lost their jobs; they would come back to work. You would see increased merchandising and supply of building materials.
“When this project is completed, it would open up these communities; connect Nasarawa State and Benue; farmers would benefit from the movement and transportation of their farm produce. I am optimistic that we would get this project completed in 2018.”
