nassThe Federal Ministry of Works has been advised by members of the House of Representatives to probe the German construction giant, Julius Berger, over what they termed shoddy reconstruction of Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, less than five years after reconstruction.

The Chairman, House Committee on Public Account, Honourable Adeola Solomon; chairman, House Committee on Anti-Corruption, National Ethics and Values, Honourable James Faleke and Honourable Babatunde Adejare called for the probe, while briefing newsmen in Abuja, on Thursday, shortly after the plenary session on the bad state of the expressway.

According to the lawmakers, the expressway was built by the administration of former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, but alleged that due to the shoddy ways it was reconstructed, the road had turned bad. The lawmakers claimed that between four and five years that Julius Berger reconstructed the road, it had failed, alleging that the project was badly carried out by the construction company.

One of them, Honourable Solomon, noted that the bad state of the expressway “is crippling the economic activities of Lagos and Ogun states,” stressing that, “Lagos-Abeokuta expressway is a Trunk ‘A’ Federal Road. The road serves as a major economic and trade route between Lagos and Ogun states and the entire South-West.”
