Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, Thursday, disclosed that Federal Government is executing over 800 projects across the country.
Fashola, who hosted the Ohafia traditional rulers and leaders of thought from Abia state, who paid him a courtesy call in his office in Abuja, said no fewer than 36 bridges were under rehabilitation and reconstruction across the country.
The delegation, which was led by the a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Chief Awa Kalu, was at the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Abuja to thank the minister and the Federal Government for the construction of a bridge in the community.
He said the federal government had revived the maintenance culture, saying that the development had manifested in the ongoing rehabilitation and reconstruction of the 36 bridges across the country.
Fashola, however, assured that the project (Ohafia bridge), which was still under construction will be completed, adding that the federal government was committed to improving the ‘connectivity’ among Nigerians.
Earlier, the delegation had conferred the Eze Enyi of Ohafia title, meaning ‘friend to all’ Ohafia on the minister.
The delegation also commended the minister for his timely response to the plight of the community, which according to it, had suffered delay in plying the bridge.
