Explore the central themes and critical points presented in the post Umahi says FG did not stop federal roads project in South East in the following sections.
The Federal Minister of Works, Dave Umahi, has said the rumour that the Federal Government had stopped funding of federal roads in the South East region of the country has no iota of truth.
Umahi made this declaration while inspecting the ongoing rehabilitation of the Ututu-Isuikwuto-Akara road in Abia on Friday.
The minister, however, disclosed that only the additional construction projects in the region, comprising four bridges and an extra 3KM road construction, amounting to N50 billion, were temporarily paused due to paucity of funds. Umahi promised that those projects would be reviewed by the ministry to ascertain why the costs of the projects were that high and work out alternative designs to cut down costs.
