“I am again happy to report that we continue to make visible progress in our strategic road construction projects like the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Apapa-Oworonsoki Expressway, Abuja-Kano Expressway, East-West Road and the Second Niger Bridge.

“We have made progress on the railway projects connecting different parts of the country. I am glad to report that the Lagos-Ibadan Line is now completed and operational.
