Govt. Has Paid All Contractors Handling Federal Roads – Fashola
There are no more excuses for bad roads and potholes now on all federal roads.
This is because all the contractors involved in the construction of all federal road projects across the country have been paid.
According to the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, no contractor is being owed by the government and as a result none of them should delay construction and rehabilitation works on any federal road that is assigned to them.
About two years ago, contractors who handled various federal road projects had complained of being owed billions of naira by the Federal Government, a development that made many of them to abandon their respective project sites.

But in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by Fashola’s Communications Adviser, Hakeem Bello, the minister stated that government had paid all the contractors now engaged in road projects across the country.
Fashola was quoted as saying that, “no contractor has any excuse to delay our work. For any contractor that does not perform, we have our remedies. It promises to be a profitable dry season that heralds a motorable rainy season”.
