Following constructive and fruitful engagements between the Deputy President of the Senate (DSP), Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, and the Honourable Minister for Works, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN), on the deplorable state of the Warri-Benin expressway and its debilitating effects on our people and businesses operating in large parts of the Niger Delta, the Federal Ministry of Works is now finalizing preparations to undertake major works on this very important national corridor.

The Deputy Senate President  commended  the  Minister’s responsiveness, understanding and assurances on the need to urgently overcome the obvious and very serious challenges that the present state of the road poses to citizens, businesses, security and by implication, the national economy.

” It is necessary to thank our people once again sincerely for their continuing patience amidst the hardships arising from the poor state of the road. The DSP and other leaders and stakeholders will continue to work diligently together to ensure that work on the road is done unhindered and properly. They  humbly appeal to the people for more patience, as they  will be constantly guided by their best interests and the greater good of the nation.
