FEC approves eight billion naira for road projects.

The Federal Executive Council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari has approved eight point two billion naira for the completion and construction of roads across the country.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who stated this at the end of the meeting, said two of the approvals were to revise the estimates of cost to enable contractors continue work.

He said the Council approved five hundred and nineteen million naira revision of contract sum of Oba Nnewi Okigwe road to cater for changes in cost of materials as the project was awarded in two thousand and nine.

Fashola also attributed the delay in the completion of the road projects to unnecessary harassment and demand for payment of compensation by benefiting communities.
