We’ll defend Lagos-Ibadan expressway in 2018 budget —Senator

Following widespread condemnations from individuals and groups particularly from the South-West, a lawmaker, representing Lagos West Senatorial District, Senator Olamilekan Adeola, has said the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway project will be completed “soon.”

Adeola, in a statement on Sunday by his Media Adviser, Mr. Kayode Odunaro, said the request by the Presidency to vire N135bn in the 2017 budget, out of which the Trunk A road would be funded, had been put in “abeyance.”

The PUNCH had exclusively reported on Wednesday that the National Assembly had yet to approve the request by the Presidency to move N135.6bn to other pressing sub-heads in the 2017 budget five months after the request was submitted to it by the executive.
