Nigerian government presses FERMA board for change

Posted by

The Minister of Works, David Umahi, has emphasized the significance of the board members’ involvement in determining the mandate of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), and has charged them with being patriotic and dedicated to their responsibilities.

Speaking at the Abuja inauguration of the agency’s sixth Governing Board, Umahi offered the guidance and promised to work to improve the state of federal roads across the country.

An additional budget of 236 road projects designated for palliative intervention has been approved, he said by President Bola Tinubu.

As he congratulated the newly appointed board members, the minister promised the public that road conditions will see a dramatic improvement in the coming two years.

Over his four years at the helm of FERMA, Chukwuemeka Agbasi highlighted a goal for the agency’s roads, which he said would lead to better socioeconomic conditions for road users, lower operational costs, and noticeable improvements in road conditions.
