Residents of Abuja and its environs have expressed gratitude to the federal government over the improvement on the road networks, similarly urging the government to quicken work rate on the incomplete road projects across the country.

Speaking with Daily Trust, some of the commuters commended the federal government for its effort on the major roads, especially those connecting the south with the north.

One of those who spoke, Henry Dogbo, a resident of Karu in Abuja, said he travelled to Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital and observed preparatory repairs works on the Abuja to Lokoja expressway.

According to him, he was happy with the effort put in place around Gwagwalada town in Abuja.

He said: “Before the Christmas time, I saw them marking the various bad portions of the Abuja to Lokoja highway. It showed they really wanted to fix them. While I returned some of those places especially around Gwagwalada town in Abuja were being fixed.”

Another road user, Osagie Momoh, also spoke: “I saw men of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) fixing bad portions around Okene. But several sections are still in deplorable state.

“The ongoing dualisation works from Auchi through Iyamo and to Okpella in Edo state has really reduced the traffic congestion and the death trap those places used to be but we hope they will speed up the work."

Abdullahi Musa, who drove along the route from Nyanya in Abuja also commented:“They are busy working on those bad portions which they marked earlier. The work is done at evening thus causing traffic but we hope they will do it well.”
