Umahi made the disclosure on Tuesday following his visit to the sites of completed and ongoing Federal Government projects in Lagos State.

Years after reconstruction commenced on the ever-busy Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, work is ongoing on the last stretch of both sides after several missed deadlines.

The newly-appointed minister started his inspection tour at outer Marina Road located on Victoria Island, a project constructed under the SUKUK financing option by the Federal Government.

The former governor of Ebonyi State later moved to the newly rehabilitated Eko Bridge before proceeding to Ijora Olopa, the Lagoon section of Eko Bridge and Apapa.

Umahi was then briefed by officials of the Ministry of Works and contractors handling different projects on that axis of Lagos State.
