The Federal Executive Council has approved N621.2 billion for the newly incorporated Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) to reconstruct the collapsed Lagos- Badagry expressway, as well as 20 other federal roads spread across the six geopolitical zones of the country.

The approval was given on Wednesday at the weekly virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House, Abuja.

According to him, nine of the selected projects are in North-central, three in North-east, two in North-west, two in South-east, three in South-south, and two in South-west.
