The governor lamented about the deplorable condition of most of the federal roads in the state.
The Governor said, “Sum of N13billion would be needed to reconstruct the failed portions of the Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta expressway while adding that N75bn would be needed to fix the entire stretch of the road.
“The Federal Government is owning Ogun State over N300 billion for the various federal roads we have constructed so far. Concerning the Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta expressway, when the engineers were asked to assess the road, they put the cost of reconstructing the failed portions at about N13bn, while the sum of N75bn will be needed to reconstruct the entire stretch of the road. Our State does not have such amount of money.”
