Onolememen announced the planned inauguration by the President at a meeting with a delegation of the Association of Luxury Bus Owners of Nigeria (ALBON) in Abuja.
It would be recalled that the concession of the 178-kilometre road, which was granted Bi-Courtney Highway Services Limited, was earlier this year terminated by the Federal Government.
However, a fresh contract for the reconstruction of the expressway was subsequently awarded to Julius Berger Nigeria Plc for the Lagos – Shagamu interchange end of the expressway.
RCC Nigeria Ltd is also expected to handle the Shagamu – Ibadan axis of the expressway.
The minister said that the project had been awarded and the government was ready to see it completed in record time.
He said the President would perform the ceremony at the Shagamu interchange section of the road adding that the government was determined to address the sorry state of the expressway.
The major problem is not the announcement my readers, the problem has been effective execution and improvement of general well-being as felt by the Nigerian populace. Its getting late but I hope GEJ is coming to make some last minute relief mission and not just still filling our hears with fables.
