FG Promises to Complete Over N26bn On-going Road Projects in Osun- Fashola
The Federal Government has promised to complete the N 26.131billion ongoing road projects in Osun.
Mr Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Power, Works and Housing said this during the inspection of the projects across the state on Thursday.
The minister was represented by Mr Hezekiah Kehinde, the Osun Controller of Works.
Fashola said that the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration inherited seven abandoned road projects totalling N18.86 billion from the past administration.
The minister, however, said that federal government had mobilised contractors back to site to complete the abandoned road projects.
He also said that the federal government had awarded four new ongoing road projects in the sum of N8.45 billion across the state.
“This administration inherited seven abandoned road projects in the sum of N18.86 billion in the state but because this government does not believe in wastage, contractors have been mobilised back to site.”
“The Federal Government considers those projects as fundamental for the socio-economic survival of the people in those areas. Which informed the urgency in which those contractors are brought back to site and the outstanding debts being cleared,” the minister said.
