What has a tiku got to do with this? To come and privatize the road?
Only a useless country will allow that.

4. The Lagos–Ibadan Expressway is the oldest in Nigeria. It was commissioned in August 1978 during the military administration of Major-General Olusegun Obasanjo.

7. The reconstruction of the Lagos–Ibadan Expressway was flagged off on July 2013 by Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Wasn't he a Lt. Gen then?

Wasn't the initial flag off of the reconstruction carried out by President Obasanjo during his first term?

11. Saraki and cronies removed appropriation for this key project and replaced it with provision of tricycles and okadas as their own constituencies projects

Oga autojoshNG, abeg quickly modify the post with jara of:
1. Which sections would be 8 lanes and which would be 6 lanes.
2. Who is responsible for each section.
3. The Start and end points of the construction site.

These facts are important.
Next time i travel that route, I'd be generous to add the percentage of each section completed.

PMB till 2023, then PYO till 2031.

God bless our President. let me see the ipob pig that will come to my door and ask me to vote for Athiefku and Obigotry.

SW is locked down for PMB. if you are not comfortable with it, u can use the lagoon.

Pigs should vote for their candidate and let Omoluabi vote for their candidate.

whatever the number of lanes - they are just additions to an existing road that took only 3years to build.

what of the 2013 cost/km? 167b divided by 127.6km

we can never have needed infrastructures at these inflated rates/costs.

1. The Lagos–Ibadan Expressway is a 127.6-kilometre-long (79.3 miles) expressway.


2. The Expressway connects Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State and Lagos.


3. It is also the major route to the northern, southern and eastern parts of Nigeria.


4. The Lagos–Ibadan Expressway is the oldest in Nigeria. It was commissioned in August 1978 during the military administration of Major-General Olusegun Obasanjo.


5. This expressway is the busiest inter-state route in Nigeria and handles more than 250,000 Passenger Car Unit (PCU) daily and constitutes one of the largest road networks in Africa.


6. It is part of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency(FERMA) projects, concerned with road improvement and connectivity between the States of Nigeria.


7. The reconstruction of the Lagos–Ibadan Expressway was flagged off on July 2013 by Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.


8. The contract was awarded to Julius Berger Nigeriaand Reynolds Construction Company Limited at a sum of 167 billion Naira, equivalent to $838,986,290.


9. Two sections of the expressway will be reconstructed and this includes Section I (Lagos to Sagamu Interchange) and section II (Sagamu Interchange to Ibadan).


10. The reconstruction of the road had 2017 as the initial completion date but it was later moved to end of 2018/early 2019 by the Mohammadu Buhari-led government as a result of the increase in scope of work.





How come RCC has been constructing a part of the road man? I have taken that route severally and it is shared between JB and RCC. One from Ibadan to Shagamu and the other from Shagamu toll gate to Lagos. So can you explain the bold part to me please?
