FG accedes to Ogun state govt request to repair Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta road
The Federal Government has given permission to the Ogun State government to carry out repairs/reconstruction of the deplorable Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta raod.
Minister of Works, David Umahi, spoke on the new federal government position after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at Aso Villa, Abuja on Monday.
“On permission to build federal roads, when such requests are made, we give approval within 24 hours but then there are conditions to be met – they must have to use the Federal Ministry of Works standard designs,” Umahi said.
The road, which runs through Lagos and Ogun states, has been in a deplorable condition for years, resulting in untold hardship for motorists, especially citizens of Ogun State.
Following efforts by Governor Abiodun to take over the road, the Federal Government gave its approval on Monday.
