The Minister of Works, David Umahi, has reaffirmed his commitment to the construction of concrete roads in Nigeria. He emphasized that President Bola Tinubu has approved this initiative and it will be enforced.

During his visit to the ongoing road dualisation project handled by Sermatech Nigeria Limited, Umahi expressed his admiration for the work being done. Sermatech, an indigenous road construction company, is currently responsible for a 28.6-kilometer stretch from Odukpani to Itu, which spans Cross River and Akwa-Ibom states.

The project includes the construction of four bridges.

Umahi encouraged other indigenous contractors to learn from Sermatech’s expertise and innovation.

Umahi also addressed the issue of payment, assuring Sermatech that he would expedite the process. He emphasized the importance of adhering to technical standards and allowing for a consolidation period of 60 days through vehicular movement, Vanguard Nigeria has reported.

This initiative aligns with the “Renewed Hope Reinforced Concrete Agenda,” an idea proposed by President Bola Tinubu. It signifies a transition towards concrete roads in Nigeria.
