Meanwhile, The Herald reported that Fashola disclosed that President Buhari will not be refunding State Governors for repairing federal roads. He said the president specifically told state governors not to fix federal roads if they will still demand a refund for compensation.

The minister made the disclosure when he made an appearance before the Federal House of Representatives’  Ad Hoc Committee on Abandoned Federal Government Road Projects from 1999 till date, on Tuesday in Abuja.

Fashola said the President was forced to issue the directive due to the exorbitant amounts being claimed by Governors as Cost for repairing Federal roads in their states.

Fashola also told the Francis Uduyok-led panel that the Ministry was handling 472 Projects at the same time, thereby over-stretching itself while noting that the never-ending demands by Lawmakers were partly responsible.

The Minister of Works said the constant budget cut was responsible for the abandoned  projects
