THE APAPA – OSHODI – OWORONSHOKI EXPRESSWAY IS SET FOR COMPLETION AND COMMISSIONING!
Do you know that the reconstruction project of the Apapa – Oshodi – Oworonshoki Expressway, whose contract was awarded by the Buhari administration in November 2018, is now being completed and is set to be commissioned this month (December 2021)?
The project is part of the bargain between the Federal Government and Dangote Industries Limited, which allows the company to construct certain roads in the country in place of a 10-year tax rebate worth about N72.9bn. And this is coming after an initial attempt to fix this particular expressway in 2013 failed, even after the sum of N15bn was expended on it.
As a major busy road in the Lagos area, the completion and reopening of this road will certainly raise the level of socioeconomic activities in the State. And the fact that its construction provided hundreds of jobs and business opportunities for residents of the city makes it a commendable economic investment by the Buhari administration.
Yes, Nigeria is on track!
