Minister of Works, Engr. David Umahi has called for objective monitoring of road and other infrastructural projects by Nigerians.

Umahi says this is pivotal to the realization of Renewed Hope Agenda being vigorously pursued by the administration of President Bola Tinubu, GCFR.

The minister stated this in an interaction with State House correspondents, shortly after paying a courtesy visit to the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, CON, in her office at the State House, Abuja.

The Minister who described the decay in road infrastructure in the country as frightening said tackling the challenges on ground require courage.

“We are tackling the challenges. We know the reasons, but I must commend the past administration on their thoughtfulness in the number of projects they earmarked and awarded. They are key projects that will crystallize into economic revolution,” the minister said.

The former Governor of Ebonyi state highlighted lack of effective supervision and dishonesty of contractors as some of the major challenges the Federal Government has to contend with.

“The President, Minister and Governors have good setting. We have paid for these roads. It is up to us Nigerians to ensure that things are rightly done for the benefit of all of us. And so, where there are failures, we should place the blames rightly where it belongs, not when people don’t do their work, then leadership is blamed,” he added.

The Minister commended the First Lady for all that she has so far undertaken, through her Initiative, Renewed Hope Initiative.
