Works and Housing Minister Babatunde Fashola on Tuesday directed the immediate emergency repairs on failed portions of roads affected by floods in five states across the country.
A statement by the Director of Press and Public Relations in the ministry, Mrs. Boade Akinola, said the minister gave the directive at a briefing in Abuja.
The affected roads for repairs include Ibadan–Ife road, Gombe–Bauchi road, Gombe–Darazo, Bauchi–Ningi, Bida–Lambata, and Tsamiya Bridge in Jigawa State.
Fashola assured Nigerians of Federal Government’s continuous attention to other roads with similar problems.
The minister said the government remained committed to infrastructure development, adding that it would always respond promptly to complaints from the citizens.
He urged commuters to be patient with the government, saying the downpour across the country has a negative effect on road construction and rehabilitation.
