President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the reconstitution of the Board of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA).
The Minister of Works, Senator David Umahi, disclosed this on Thursday while speaking with State House correspondents after meeting with President Tinubu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Umahi, a former Governor of Ebonyi State, said the reconstruction of the FERMA board is with the aim of speeding up the road maintenance nationwide.
He said: “Let me also announce that Mr President approved the reconstitution of the FERMA Board, and this is very good for us, this is so that work can now get a bit more serious with FERMA in terms of very prompt maintenance of the roads”.
Asked how soon Nigerians should expect to see contractors mobilising to sites, Umahi said due process will be followed in the selection of contractors before mobilization.
He said, “There’s a process; we’re doing the designs and procurement and selecting contractors for this. We’re calling some contractors that have existing projects within these locations.
“We’re getting selective renderings from the approval of BPP, and these are the procedures. I’m sure with the onset of dry season from November, these works will get started, and we’re going to put a lot of pressure on them for them to complete the works”.
