El-Rufai Seeks Refund Of Monies Spent On FG Roads

Governor of Kaduna state Nasir El-Rufai has asked the Federal Government to refund to states, funds spent on Federal Government projects especially on repair and rehabilitation of federal highways across the country.

He appealed to the Federal Government to hand over such roads in the country to the state governments.

According to the governor, this will enable effective management and ensure the long-term viability of the roads.

He made this known when he received the Senate Committee on Works led by its Chairman, Senator Kabiru Gaya, at the Government House in Kaduna, where he also asked the Federal Government to speed up the completion of the Kaduna eastern bypass road which was awarded since 2002.

He said that many roads linking the various parts of the country are in terrible condition despite the yearly budgetary allocations for rehabilitation of such roads and their poor state has continued to pose a nightmare to motorists and travellers. Channels Television.
