FG completed 29 road interventions in Nigeria’s institutions – Fashola


The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola said on Wednesday the Federal Government has so far finished 29 road interventions in different tertiary institutions across the country.

The minister expressed this while initiating a one-kilometer internal road at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Ituku Ozalla, Enugu.

Fashola, who was addressed at the occasion by the Federal Controller of Works in Enugu State, Mr. Olufemi Oyekanmi, said 17 of such projects were finished and given over to the profiting institutions in 2020.

He reviewed that the government had a year ago finished and gave over a 2.5 km internal road to the administration of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN).

Fashola said: “Today, we hand over this project in UNTH as a critical intervention to support education.

“The point must be made that though this is a civil work project, it is an investment in education.”

He said the current administration had moved to address the infrastructure gap in the country.

“The gap of our infrastructure needs is steadily being bridged by a gradual process of repairs, renewal, and construction on major highways. This has reached the schools.

“Without doubt the quality of education will be impacted by the quality of infrastructure and the learning environment.

“Those who doubt it should simply listen to some feedback from students in the schools where this type of intervention has taken place,” the minister added.
