“The sum of N100 billion is needed to construct the Apapa Road in Lagos state, Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola says.
Fashola disclosed this via a statement released by his media aide, Hakeem Bello on Sunday, May 21.
“I just want to appeal to residents of Apapa and to people whose livelihood depends on Apapa, that Apapa is one of the priority roads under our ministry of works to solve roads that lead to critical ports,” Fashola said during a retreat in Abuja.
“We also have Calabar on our radar. But one by one, there will be an enduring solution. We’ve done the design, we’ve done everything for Apapa; it is ready. It is going to be a concrete road, I believe, that will last another 30 years. So, we are close to starting work,” he added.
The minister is also quoted in the statement as saying that the Apapa road is a priority project for the Nigerian government and that work will start on the road in a couple of weeks.”
