FG to link geo-political zones with dual carriageways


BENIN—Minister of Works, Mr. Mike Onolememen, has said the Federal Government will link ‘’the six geo-political zones in the country with dual-carriageways to promote economic development in the country.’’

Onolememen said the  government will dualise the Benin-Okene Road, even as he pledged to fill the potholes at Five Junction and Dawson Road in Benin City, as well as the entire stretch of the road from Akpakpava Junction through Ugbowo and up to Ofosu, which he said will be reconstructed.

The minister who spoke when he paid a courtesy visit to the Oba of Benin at his palace, weekend,  while on the inspection of the Benin- Ore Road, said: “President Goodluck Jonathan planned to commence work on the second phase of the Abuja- Lokoja dual-carriage way to link up with the South East, South West and South South geo-political zones with Abuja.”
