Nigeria Senate to Investigate PPPRA non-remittance of #800bn For Road Maintenance Across Nigeria

The Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency is set be investigated by the Ahmed Lawan led Senate over alleged non-remittance of N800 billion to the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) for the maintenance of roads across the country.

Lawan stated this in his concluding remarks on a bill for an Act to Repeal the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency Act, 2002 and to Establish the Federal Roads Authority Bill, 2019.

According to the Senate President, previous efforts by Nigeria to concession government enterprise failed as a result of systemic corruption.

He, therefore, called for Public – Private – Partnership in the construction of roads across the country if government must meet up to its responsibility of providing good roads.
