The Ministry of Works and Housing are seeing to the rehabilitation of bad roads in the country

Naijauto gathered that the sum of ₦523 million was also approved to finalize the construction of the Efalaye/Erimo/ Iwaraja road connecting Osun and Ekiti states.

"That road was awarded since 2009 and the contractor has achieved about 85 per cent of the work so we are trying to complete that road, it had been slowed down by previous years of insufficient budget.

During that period the price at which it was awarded and today’s material prices have altered significantly so he is asking for a review of N523,826,000, which has been approved."

He disclosed that the Ministry of Works and Housing made known to the council which was chaired by President Buhari, the number of roads that have been rehabilitated across the country so far. He pointed out that 524 roads are still undergoing construction.
