We owe road contractors N306bn-Fashola

Nigerian lawyer and politician who is currently the Federal Minister of Works and Housing having served two terms as Governor of Lagos State from May 29, 2007 to May 29, 2015 has revealed that rod contractors are currently being owed a total of N306 billion Naira

Speaking to members of the Public Transport Owners of Nigeria Association (PTONA) in Abuja on Monday, December 9, 2019, Fashola mentioned that within the last four years, the ministry had not received a trillion naira allocation.

Though he has been able to pay contractors only N72 billion, Fashola added that despite the huge debt owed road contractors, he has met with the affected companies and convinced them to return to site.

According to Fashola, the entire road, sea and air travelling routes were important not only to Mr President but also to all Nigerians, as “the government wants to lift people from the state of poverty to prosperity.”
