“We had a presentation on it yesterday with the consultant, and it’s going to be on Public Private Partnership (PPP). Driving from Lagos to Abuja will take four hours; we are concluding on it within one or two months, and work will start.

He noted further that work would begin on the construction of the highway in the next two months, pointing out that the project would interconnect states to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“We have a programme called Highway Development Management Initiative (HDMI), and it allows states and other private investors to engage with the Federal Government either to take over a fully constructed road to toll and maintain it in partnership with the Federal Government or take a brand new road and reconstruct it and toll it under laid down agreement.”
