The minister of finance Kemi Adeosun, while presenting the cheque to Babatunde Fashola, minister of power, works and housing, said the Sukuk funds will assist the federal government’s capital spending for 2017.
“The proceeds will be used to further support government capital spending for 2017 – the construction and rehabilitation of 25 key economic roads across the six geo-political zones of the country,” the finance minister said.
“The roads will ease commuting, spur economic activities across the country and further close our infrastructural gap. Each of the six geo-political zones is expected to receive the sum of N16.67 billion for road projects in their respective zones.
“The north central and south-south zones accounted for five each of the 25 key economic road projects, while the north-east, north-west and south-east have four road projects each. Three projects are to receive funding from the sovereign Sukuk proceeds in the south-west zone.”
Below is the comprehensive list of the 25 roads as tweeted by BudgIT Nigeria. Also included are the budgeted amounts for the roads and target dates for completion.
