From what the minister said, the president made this known when the state government submitted the cost which they spent in repairing the federal roads around there jurisdiction and the bill were summing up to trillions of naira.
The president emphasized that the cost which the state government claims they spend in re-construction of those federal road was too high as the government is already in huge debt. He advised the governors not to repair federal roads again if they will come asking for refund of money spent on those projects.
