Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola says is untrue that the Federal Government has no presence in Rivers State in terms of project implementation.

The Minister stated this when he visited the Bonny/Bodo Road Project being executed through the Federal Government Tax Credit Scheme.

The Minister’s visit to the thirty-eight kilometres Bonny/Bodo road project was to ascertain the progress of work done so far.

Impressed with the level of work, Fashola said the construction of the project is a clear indication of the Federal Government’s presence in Rivers State.
