Nigeria needs N10trn bond for roads, power – Fashola

Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says Nigeria needs, at least, N10 trillion bond to develop key infrastructures such as roads and power.

Fashola gave the insight on Monday during a budget defence session with the House of Representatives Committee on Works, chaired by Toby Okechukwu (PDP, Enugu).

The Minister, who was reacting to questions by members of the Committee over failing roads in Nigeria, noted that funding remained a major constraint behind road construction and maintenance.

According to him, only a long term infrastructure bond, backed up with viable legislative framework, would take care of failing infrastructure in the country, and thus drive critical aspects of the economy.

Fashola also called for caution in the application of the Road Fund Bill, recently signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, so as not to “raise expectations above realities.”

“We have to challenge ourselves to access revenue to fund our roads. But since the budget is limited, we must subscribe to realities.

“I want to say that Nigeria needs N10 trillion infrastructure bond, through legislative approval, to effectively fund our roads and power.

“Critical infrastructures, such as roads, are national social investments meant to encourage the growth and development of other aspects of the economy,” Fashola told the lawmakers.
