As of press time, the minister is also expected to inspect the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, the reconstructed Apapa Oshodi Expressway, the Deep Sea Ports, and other Federal Government projects on the Lagos and Ogun corridor.

After the former governor’s first interview with Channels Television as minister, Nigerians from several parts of the country sent messages drawing his attention to the condition of federal roads in their areas.

According to the scorecard released by the Ministry of Works and Housing towards the end of the previous administration, a total of 8,352.94 km of roads were constructed or rehabilitated between 2016 and 2022.
