the Fed­eral Roads Main­te­nance Agency has called on the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to pro­vide more fund­ing for road projects.

the Managing Di­rec­tor of the FERMA, Mr Nu­rudeen Rafind­adi said the de­cline of good roads and in­crease of bad roads could be linked to in­ad­e­quate fund­ing.

He made this known in Ow­erri, Imo State, at the agency’s an­nual lec­tures and awards.

Rafind­adi stated that bud­getary re­lease to the agency had con­tin­ued to drop, adding that this gave rise to in­crease in bad stretches along fed­eral high­ways

A FERMA en­gi­neer, Mr Chuk­wue­meka Mad­u­agwu, urged staff of the agency to en­sure that they con­tin­ued to be du­ti­ful and ef­fi­cient in their work.

he added that there was no sub­sti­tute to hard­work.
