The Federal Government is ready to partner with the Dangote Group of Companies towards the completion of the 61 kilometre Obajana-Kabba road in Kogi State.
The Minister of State for Works, Ambassador Bashir Yuguda, said this in Abuja while receiving the President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, in his office.
He said the government had completed 20 kilometres of the road and would ensure the workability of the partnership in the interest of Nigerians.
He said the ministry had advocated such a collaborative effort towards the attainment of the transformational agenda of the incumbent administration.
Earlier in his remarks, Dangote explained the importance of the road to the Obajana Cement factory which, according to him, is in the process of increasing production output to one truck per minute.
