The Federal Government has come out to list road infrastructural development in the southwest zone and other zones in the country as its topmost priority.

The Southwest Director of Highways, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Mr. Adedamola Kuti revealed this recently as he addressing newsmen at the end of a two-day inspection tour of ongoing Federal Government road projects in Oyo State.

According to him, completion of the road projects in Nigeria would guarantee the link-up of the several sections of the nation and ensure smooth vehicular movement for Nigerians.

He added that the current government remains very committed to infrastructure development and that will not change anytime soon.

His words, “Every project has funding challenge but government is trying its best to ensure that all its projects are funded, to encourage contractors that are committed.”

“Government is trying to raise money here and there, for some of its projects, result of part of the money raising is what we are seeing.”

“Is not for government to borrow money and people won’t see what they have used it for, this is part of what they are using it for.”

“So far so good we are happy with what we have seen. The liberty road project is special repairs in the township, no serious work has started there, they’re just working on the drainage structures”

“At Maya- Iseyin road, the bridge is already in place, though the contractor – Preconsmith Construction Limited, was not on site, but we are impressed with the ongoing work there.”

“On Iseyin-Okeho 28.65km road, handling by indigenous contractor, HMF Construction Ltd, the project is barely six months old and we have seen the level of completion within this short time.”

“I’m very impressed that within six months, he has worked to appreciable level, unlike some contractors that would still be struggling to mobilise to site.”

“The people of Oke-Ogun in Oyo State are seeing the impact of government, by these projects, nobody will complain of abandonment, here is a border town – Nigeria share a boundary with the Republic of Benin, so the people have not been forgotten.”

“Despite the fact that people of this area are further off from city, presence of government is still felt in this place.”

“And we have a lot of agriculture products that come out from this environment so by the time this road is completed agriculture products can move out of this axis with ease; that is the essence of this project.”

“We do hope that the nation economy would be better, to be able to secure more funds to execute some of these projects.”
