New Look Lagos Ibadan Expressway

The Muhammadu Buhari led administration of the Nigerian nation continues to push the boundaries of infrastructural development, especially in the areas of road, rail, housing and a few others.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, had earlier said in the month of July 2022 that the construction of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will be completed in December, 2022.

Fashola, who spoke on Channels Television, Sunday evening, said the 127 kilometres road would be ready before Christmas of the year 2022, adding that this was, however, subjected to a lot of variables.

Fashola mentioned this while responding to questions on the performance of the Nigerian President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)’s administration on infrastructure in the last seven years.

Travellers of the road can testify that Asphalt binding has been completed on major sections of the road, one of the contractors, RCC has intensified marking on the Sagamu-Ibadan section of the 127.6Km long road.

A yet to be verified information states that roads across the country will get an additional funding of N621bn from NNPC and N200bn from Sukuk as against N11bn budgeted for roads in 2015.

One can indeed argue that Nigeria is making gradual economic progress in the midst of the multiple challenges faced by the country.

God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria, God bless Africa.
