The Minister of Works, Dave Umahi, visited Lagos State on Tuesday for his first major inspection tour of federal projects in the state.
The site trip began at outer Marina Road at Victoria Island, where the Federal Government had built a project using the SUKUK financing option.
After that, he went to the recently restored Eko Bridge to receive a briefing from representatives of the ministries and the project’s contractors.
As of the time of publication, the minister is also anticipated to visit other Federal Government projects on the Lagos and Ogun corridor, including the Deep Sea Ports, the Apapa Oshodi Expressway, and the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Following the former governor’s first televised interview, he said Nigerians from various regions of the nation sent him letters bringing up the state of the federal highways in their regions.
A total of 8,352.94 km of roads were built or rehabilitated between 2016 and 2022, according to the scorecard that the Ministry of Works and Housing produced toward the end of the previous government.
