Lagos-Ibadan Road: FG Sends Julius Berger Back To Site
Things are gradually picking up pace following the signing of the 2018 budget into law.
Some ongoing federal road projects which had been suspended before now due to lack of funds are resuming.
This includes the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. The Federal Government has remobilised Julius Berger Nigeria Plc to commence work on the road.
It was gathered that the firm was expecting huge payment from the Federal Government following the signing of the 2018 Appropriation Bill by President Muhammadu Buhari, after it was passed by the National Assembly.
Senior officials of Julius Berger on Monday reiterated the position of the firm’s Managing Director, Wolfgang Goetsch, as regards the remobilisation by the Federal Government, but insisted that it was not within the purview of the construction firm to reveal the amount involved to the public.
They explained that it was against the contractual terms for the firm to state the amount to the press.
The officials, however, noted that the company had been remobilised and was expecting sizeable financial outlay from the government since the 2018 budget had been passed and signed by the President.
At the 48th Annual General Meeting of Julius Berger in Abuja, Goetsch assured users of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway that the firm would hasten the reconstruction of the road, noting that it could not work on the project site during the dry season due to some challenges.
