National Assembly approved N22.89bn for 2020 road maintenance (Read Details)

The National Assembly approved N22.89bn  for the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency’s capital expenditure in the 2020 budget.

One of our correspondents observed that  in the 2019 estimates, N24.69bn was budgeted for the agency, which was set up in 2002 with the aim of maintaining the Federal  Government’s roads.

FERMA’s  budgetary allocations came to the fore on Thursday against the backdrop of poor roads in the country and the National Assembly’s huge N37bn budget  for the repair of its complex.

But the House of Representatives on Thursday remained unrepentant and lashed out at the critics of the N37bn allocation for the repair of the National Assembly complex, saying they were uninformed.
