Whereas the Federal Government on Wednesday told Nigerians that all is set for the delivery of the Lagos-Ibadan Road on April 30 this year, checks on May 1, 2023, showed that skeletal construction activities are still ongoing along the road.

Recall that the government during press briefing after last week’s Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting told Nigerians that the road will be delivered on April 30, 2023.

Besides, other other national projects due for delivery according to the outgoing government include; the Loko Oweto Bridge, Kano-Zaria Road, completed Federal Secretariats in Nasara­wa, Akwa Ibom, Zamfara, among others.

At the FEC meeting, the Minister of Works brought approval for the ongoing bypass­ing, I think along the La­gos-Ibadan Expressway, but the good thing about this project is that we can very confidently and proudly announce that the Kano- Zaria 137-kilometer and the Zaria-Kaduna, 73 kilo­meters, will be handed over to us on May 15. Ditto the second Niger Bridge will be handed over to us on May 15, the Lagos-Ibadan 116 kilometers, with toll gates, will be handed over to us on April 30.

The Loko-Oweto Bridge is also completed, so also is the Ikom Bridge completed. Our Federal Secretariats in Nasarawa, Awka, Bayelsa and Zamfara states are also completed and the Zuba housing project, 700 apart­ments, they’re also already for commissioning, the government said.
