The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola has come out to say that the ministry’s focus in the 2021 budget is the completion of some priority road projects.

Mr. Babatunde Fashola recently came out to say that the ministry is majorly concentrating on the roads on routes A1-A9.

According to Mrs. Boade Akinola, Director, Press and Public Relations of the ministry, the disparity between the liabilities in unpaid certificates and the budgetary provisions over the years has forced the ministry to make its 2021 Capital Proposals a priority for more impact between 2021-2023 in the road sector.

He added that the ministry has selected two roads and a bridge per zone for enhanced funding in the 2021 budget to achieve appreciable progress on the projects.

His words, “Given the wide disparity between the liabilities in unpaid certificates in the total sum of N392, 019, 827, 093.87k and the budgetary provisions over the years, it has become imperative that the ministry prioritised its 2021 Capital Proposals.

“In order to make appreciable impact within the period 2021-2023, that can be physically experienced by road users.”

“Mr President had during the presentation of the 2021 budget proposals repeatedly emphasised the necessity to focus the budget on completion of projects.

“Therefore, the ministry has given priority first to 18 roads/bridges projects that have already attained some appreciable physical achievement for completion within a 12-15 month period by (December, 2021)”

“The ministry has selected two roads and a bridge per zone for enhanced funding in the 2021 budget to achieve appreciable progress on the projects.

“Also targeted for adequate funding is the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) Counterpart Fund for the projects financed by the China Exim Bank.”
