A Civil Society Organization – the Anti-Corruption Network – has described the reconstruction of Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano Road project recently awarded at the cost of N797billion as the most expensive on earth.

He said: “On the 3rd of March 2021, the Federal Executive Council approved the reconstruction of Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano Road at the cost of N797billion. “According to a report put out by the apex bank of the world, World Bank, the cost of constructing 1 kilometer of road is ₦238 million.“This figure is the benchmark that usually shouldn’t be surpassed regardless of several factors.

“In other words, the number of kilometers to be covered by the ECOWAS project is eight times higher than Nigeria’s Lagos-Ibadan Express road project; and the cost per kilometer is far lower than that of Nigeria.
