Abuja-Kano Road: Fashola Blames "Senators’ Request" For Slow Pace Of Work by iwaeda: 11:31pm On Nov 20
Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, SAN, has explained that one of the reasons for the delay in the construction of the Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano dual carriageway was the request made by some members of the National Assembly to expand the road from two lanes to three lanes.

A statement from the Ministry of Works’ Deputy Director Press and Public Relations, Boade Akinola, quoted Fashola as saying this at the town hall meeting of stakeholders organised by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing held in the Kaduna State University Conference Hall, Kaduna.

The statement issued on Friday was titled, ‘FG Reiterates Commitment to Completing Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria -Kano Dual Carriageway’.

Fashola also reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to completing the ongoing reconstruction of the Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano dual carriageway.

Responding to various questions from stakeholders who wanted to know why the construction work on the road was taking too long, the minister was quoted as saying, “Shortly after we flagged off the road, we received a letter from the Senators in the National Assembly asking the Federal Government to expand the road from two lanes to three lanes, that was not from us, it was from the National Assembly, the Senators and they wrote to the President and copied my Ministry.”

Explaining further, Fashola stated that based on the directive from the Presidency to undertake that expansion, “we needed to redesign an expansion to accommodate about 40 different bridges on this road to align with the lanes.

“So if they are going to expand from two to three lanes, a new design needed to be created. The process for doing that required us to hire a design consultant. We had to follow the procurement process established by the National Assembly.”

He said, “The procurement process is a long one which entails advertising, waiting for a period of six weeks after advertisement, reviewing of tender, picking of consultant and going to the Bureau for Public Procurement and finally to the Federal Executive Council for approval to hire a consultant to do the design requested.”

The Minister also disclosed that after going through all the processes of procurement for redesigning to three lanes the Ministry received another instruction to revert back to two lanes due to paucity of fund.

Fashola also attributed the delay in completion to the total length of the road and the process of construction.

He added, “Each Lane is 375km. So if you multiply that by four, we are building a thousand and five hundred kilometres of highway. No matter how hard you tried to work, if there was 25 hours in one day to do this work, we will commit to it, but the truth is that materials take time to react, minimum and maximum processes must be observed.”

One thing about PMB is that he brings out the true colour of people. Fashola pretended to be a good governor but couldn't pretend anymore under PMB. He has always failed in all the ministerial duties when he handled three ministries and now that he is handling one ministry. He is still there as a minister because of his evil alliance with the powers that be. This is the same man who inserted a whooping N11b into the budget of Ferma all by himself and even the Ferma boss was surprised and unable to defend it embarassed

Nawa oo. How many 3-lane highways do we have in the South?. Northerners ensuring that they use the country's resources for their own max selfish benefit. Considering that we don't have enough roads in the country, the money to be spent on the extra lane can we used to build a single carriage road somewhere, where no roads exist. They can build the current road as 2-lanes first with room for expansion later. Foolish administrators managing the affairs of the country.

It is well.

CIA Fashola, would always find someone else to always blame......


He was an active governor, but an awful/failed minister.......... A government that cannot provide electricity in 6 months, is a failed government.......

He had almost 4 years........ No consequences for failure. ....

Hi Nairalanders, we all know how hard the country is these days. As a result, we have been looking for various ways of making money both online and offline. But no one that has a sure way online is ready to help.
It was on this Nairaland when I was looking for how to make money that providence made me meet someone who introduced me to one trading platform where I registered with 1k and made over Two thousand naira on the first day.



The profit is huge and more than 100% and it is made every single night.

The person who introduced me made over Sixty thousand in three weeks.


How do we do it? There is a trading site, there is also a signal group on Telegram or WhatsApp. We receive signals from our leader on what to trade and the amount to stake, every trading session lasts for 3 minutes and trading takes place 24/7 but, we only trade for 1 straight hour in a day. That is 9 PM, but we usually get online at least 30 minutes before trading begins. The signals are too sure as we always win 80% of our trade. You are guaranteed of making profit every night and you can withdraw your money Mondays to Fridays 9AM-5PM. Even if the money means nothing to you, it can at least settle some little bills and get you out of being always broke. If you want to be making between 1000 to 3000 Naira or more every single night. If after registration you don't make any profit from the platform on your first day, I am ready to refund your 1k. Chat with me on WhatsApp 08149796338 to receive PDF that explains how to trade.

That's because you expect the workmen and other factors to still remain the same.
You remember that arithmetic of "if it takes X men y days to build a road, how many days will it take z men working at same pace?" All the variables for the "facts" you need are right there.

He said “all variables are right there” like the land topography will be the same all through and no road side building will be affected by the expansion, no compensation calculation, no new rocks will be met etc. Everything will just remain constant as it was before the expansion.

This is one of the reasons I’ve reduced engagements on here. Imagine this your comment. Stinking like a long nosed rat.
