TRANSPORTATION: Federal Government Begs State Governments to Repair Federal Roads

The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has asked states to take over the repairs and maintenance of federal roads in order to reduce the burden on the Federal Government. The appeal was made on Tuesday during a
two-hour meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari. It said states that could afford to take over federal highways should do so as quickly as possible so that the roads do not go into "total deterioration."
Kaduna State governor, Nasir E-Rufai had sent a request to President Buhari to re-designate the Nnamdi Azikwe and the Ahmadu Bello Expressways in Kaduna as state roads so that the state government would "have the power, without any inhibition, to work on the roads to make them better for Kaduna indegenes. The Federal Executive council appealed to other States to borrow a leaf from Kaduna State to take over federal roads to lessen the burden on federal government.
Guys, What do you think?

Where is the money for the repairs?

Endy Edeson

@young: that is, if the State have the money but i think FG will still wade in to support any state that agrees on the terms

Young Agu Esteem

Endy, no money in any state now for that. Mr Change should release money for our federal roads maintenance...

Kelly Murphy

since he reduced state allocations where did he keep the money for maintenance, El rufai just did his own based on buhari is his friend so that they won't laugh him

Endy Edeson

@kelly: you have a point. Politics is the name of the game. For the States that not financially viable, Federal Government should not delay in repairing their roads.

Kelly Murphy

state like Abia state can't repair the port Harcourt road express,so they have been expecting Federal government to come and ward the road now they trying to concur rubbish, if care is not taken I'm sorry to say this federal government might be open to civilian coup this time around

Sam Oladele Alebiosu

For this to be feasible their must be true federalism and restructured of the current quasifederal system of the current nigeria admnistration.Larger allocation,large per centage of fiscal allocations to the states and local govts.

Jamyson Etukeren

In akwaibom we will not carry last

Jeremiah Ademolu

You mean those state that can not pay workers salary in their state should go repair federal roads.

Endy Edeson

@Jeremiah: FG will repair their roads. it's only viable State. I got your points though
