The Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday approved N126 billion for the rehabilitation and construction of 12 roads across some states of the federation.
The beneficiary states include Jigawa, Kano, Enugu, Kwara, Adamawa, Bauchi, Gombe and Kaduna.
Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola disclosed this while briefing State House Correspondents on the outcome of the weekly meeting of FEC presided over by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
According to him, the contracts spread across the country would energise the ailing economy as massive funds would be injected into the construction sub sector.
FEC also approved a new national health policy for the country.
Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Odewale who also briefed correspondents explained that the policy would ensure increased budgetary provision and universal health coverage for citizens.
