Federal Government to complete Abuja-Abaji-Lokoja road through SURE-P

MINISTER of Works, Mike Onolememen has assured Nigerians that the dualization and the rehabilitation of 250 km Abuja-Abaji-Lokoja which was awarded in 2006, would be completed by the first quarter of 2014. He told contractors that the funding of the project would no longer be a problem as the project is now under Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) and a major priority of President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

The minister, who disclosed this during his inspection visit to the four sections of the expressway awarded to different contractors, noted that completion of the road was a top priority of the present administration as it was one of the major corridors for the movement of people, goods and services in and out of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
