Ogun, Lagos, Presidency Still Negotiating On Three Major Roads

Ogun and Lagos State governments are still negotiating with the Federal Government on the likely hand over to them of three major roads linking the two states.

The roads are Epe-Ijebu Ode, Sagamu-Ikorodu and Abeokuta-Lagos roads.

Consultant to Governor Dapo Abiodun on works and infrastructure, Ade Akinsanya, who made this known to newsmen in Abeokuta, says the negotiations are being handled by governor Abiodun and his Lagos state counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The two state governments in their original requests tabled before President Buhari wants total takeover of the roads for concession under the public-private partnership.

But the presidency wants to be part of the deal, calling for modalities for a partnership on the plans of the two state governments for the three roads.

Already, African Finance Corporation has submitted a proposal to Governor Abiodun for the reconstruction of the Ijebu Ode-Epe road, which the state government is considering.

A top official of Ogun State Government told Rockcity Fm that federal government is reluctant to hand over the Lagos-Abeokuta and Sagamu-Ikorodu Roads, because it had already awarded contract for the reconstruction of the two roads.

But Governor Abiodun had said the fund being released by the federal government to the contractors is grossly inadequate to facilitate the completion of the projects.
