LOKOJA—Kogi State government, yesterday, said about 60 percent of all ongoing road projects across the three senatorial districts of the state will be ready for commissioning by January 2019.
Chief of Staff to the Governor, Chief Edward Onoja, who gave the hint in Lokoja while speaking to newsmen on the sidelines of the 27th anniversary of the state, said the remaining road projects will be completed before the end of the governor’s four years in office.
He said: “Work on the Olamaboro-Ikeje-Ibana-Okpo Road has moved on progressively. It has left Ibana, it has gone to Okpo; to Ogugu around Odo-Idoko.
“I believe that once the contractors get mobilised as the rains recede, they will head towards the terminal point, which is at the boundary of Enugu State.
“The Idah-Umomi 57-kilometre road has also made a lot of progress. It remains about 12 miles to completion. The Agasa-Upogoro Road in the Central District has relatively gone very far.
“The Ife-Olukotun Iyamoye road in the West Senatorial district has equally moved on well.”
