The minister applauded the president for approving the release of funds to initiate work on these projects, acknowledging that financial concerns had previously caused delays in their implementation.

He said:-

“I want to thank Mr President, who, about three days ago, approved that work should immediately commence in many sections of the Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano road.

“We were having some problems with funding, but the president has solved the problem and directed for the immediate release of funds so that the road construction will continue.

“The same thing with the Lagos-Ibadan highway and the Second Niger bridge bypasses.”

The minister commended Benue and Enugu governors for ensuring that contractors work seamlessly on the Makurdi-Otukpo-9th mile road, which is being financed by China Exim Bank.
