World Bank to spend US$190m to upgrade roads in Nigeria

Six states in Nigeria will benefit  from the World Bank’s US$190 million fund for the second phase of Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAMP II) in 2012, aimed at providing feeder roads in the rural areas to ease the transportation of agricultural produce across the country.

The states are Adamawa, Niger and Kaduna in the north, and Enugu, Osun and Cross River in the south.

The private Guardian newspaper Friday quoted the World Bank Transport specialist, Mr. Tunji Ahmed, as saying the Bank was collaborating with Nigeria in order to provide good roads needed to assist farmers to transport their goods.

He disclosed that 448 kilometres of rural roads were being constructed in Kaduna state alone
