The Federal Road Maintenance Agency says it has commenced plans to fill up potholes and intervene in the repair of 50 failed federal roads across the country.
In response to an inquiry by newsmen, the Director of Information and Communication, Maryam Sanusi, said the agency had mapped out plans to fix the roads and make them accessible all year round.
An earlier report had revealed that President Bola Tinubu’s administration inherited 38 uncompleted road projects worth 979 billion Naira from the former President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
The projects were identified through an analysis of the 2023 budget and cross-checked with the national monitoring and evaluation platform, EYEMARK, which was launched by Buhari in December last year.
One of the critical projects was the expansion of the Abuja-Keffi dual carriageway and the dualization of the Keffi-Akwanga-Lafia-Makurdi road in Nasarawa State.
