Minister of Works and Housing, Dr Raji Fashola, has urged motorists nationwide to keep speed limits below 100km/h on Nigerian roads.
This is as he said the emergence of new roads across the nation has raised drivers’ propensity to speed excessively.
Fashola disclosed this to State House Correspondents on Thursday during a Special Weekly Briefing coordinated by the Presidential Communications Team at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
He also decried the sale of Premium Motor Spirit and other petroleum products, saying they deteriorate the roads faster.
The minister said this while briefing the press on the current status of the Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund and other major projects being undertaken by the Ministry of Works and Housing.
He also provided further updates on key collaborations between the Federal Government and the State Governments in the implementation of some of the major reforms being executed by the Ministry and the PIDF.
