The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr Samson Ayokunle, has slammed the Federal Government for its inability to complete the 200-kilometre Abuja-Lokoja highway that has been under construction for 15 years, saying that it is a shame of the nation.
He described as “national shame” that the road still remained under construction with no date yet for completion.
Ayokunle disclosed this in Lokoja on Monday at the official inauguration of the Government House Chapel for Christian worshippers built by the Alhaji Yahaya Bello-led administration in Kogi State.
“Lokoja-Abuja highway is a shame of the country. Do something and remove this shame; 15 years constructing a 200kms road is a shame,” he said.
In his remarks, Governor Yahaya Bello who was represented by his deputy, Chief Edward Onoja said he thanked God for giving them the wisdom and strength to construct a chapel for Christian denomination in the state in the seat of government.
