The Federal Executive Council FEC has approved the N12.088 billion for the section two of the Ohafia-Arochukwu road in Abia State.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, revealed this to State House Correspondents after the week’s FEC meeting held at the Presidential Villa.
“The memorandum presented by the Ministry of Works and Housing today is for the Section two of the Ohafia to Arochukwu road. This section comprises Umuahia/Bende/Ohafia road in Abia State and it was approved for construction at N12.088 billion comprising a distance of 45 kilometers to complement Section One which was previously awarded in 2018, that is the section from Bende/Arochukwu to Ohafia which was 19.27 kilometers.
“So with this award now, the entire length of the road is now under contract with the same contractor and we hope for expeditious execution,” he said.
