All Ongoing Projects Will Be Completed In 3 Years – Fashola

All ongoing projects wil be completed within three years, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola has promised.

“The Federal Government of Nigeria and President Muhammadu Buhari have expressed very clear commitment to finish the ongoing and abandoned projects,” Fashola said on Saturday evening after inspecting work at the Loko-Oweto Bridge over River Benue which connects Loko and Oweto communities in Nasarawa State and Benue respectively.

“We are focusing on completion of ongoing projects; this is one of the many ongoing projects.

“Lagos-Ibadan expressway is one of them; Kano-Maiduguri is one of them; Ilorin-Jebba is one of them and the Second Niger Bridge is one of them.

“All those projects now, the contractors are moving back to sites and work is beginning. Gradually over the next three years we would complete many of them,” the minister said.

He said that the Federal Government would make funds available to pay contractors as soon as they delivered completed projects.
