The Federal Government has released a list of 69 ongoing road and bridge projects in the South-east.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, in a statement signed by his aide Segun Adeyemi on Monday, said though the contracts for many of the roads were awarded before the advent of the current administration, they were either poorly funded or not funded at all which is why the projects lingered.
The Minister, however, explained that the 69 roads and bridges which are spread across the five states in the south-east are now in different stages of completion.
According to him, funds were provided from budgetary allocations, the Sukuk Bond and the Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund.
He said the government is also looking into the possibility of using a part of the recovered looted funds for the development of infrastructure across the country.
