- Umahi stated that the journey from Lagos to Abuja will take four hours on the new highway.
The road will be constructed entirely with concrete, as it is a cost-effective alternative to asphalt.
The Federal Government has promised that the proposed Abuja-Lagos motorway will be finished in four years.
At a conference on Saturday, Minister of Works David Umahi provided the guarantee.
On the new route, he said that the trip from Lagos to Abuja will take four hours.
He claimed that since concrete is less expensive than asphalt, the entire road would be made with it.
