Transport Minister Mu’azu Sambo praised the Plateau State Government for the completion of the Federal Government’s road projects in the state.

A statement from the ministry’s director of Press and Public Relations, Henshaw Ogubike, revealed that Sambo led the visit of the presidential committee for the verification of federal roads to Plateau.

The projects inspected are: Heipang-Mararaban Jama’a and Mararaban Jama’a British American Junction, Polo Roundabout to Farin Gada, Secretariat Flyover and British American Junction Flyover.

According to the minister, all four projects were in order, which led to a repayment guarantee to the state.

The statement read: “This visit is from a team that is part of the ministerial committee to evaluate road projects carried out by the Plateau State government on designated federal highways.

“It is also to reimburse the state government for the money spent on carrying out said projects.

“We have seen the projects, four of them. As someone who knows Jos very well, I have to say that I am very impressed because if I had come alone, I probably would have been lost due to the quality of the flyovers and roads that I have seen.

“The state government needs to be commended, and for this project, the reimbursement is timely and in order,” he said.

Plateau state lieutenant governor Prof. Sonni Tyoden said the verification of the projects being carried out by the presidential committee was evidence that the state government had been working.

He said: “As the Minister said, the four projects are in order in terms of quality and utility for the people and as a state, we are waiting for reimbursement from the Federal Government.

“By coming at this time, it will be of help to the state and the citizens of Plateau State. However, the state government will not give up on carrying out projects that will be of benefit to the people”.
