Fashola said the augmentation was meant to accommodate erosion control measures and drains on the road .
He explained that the contract which was first awarded in 2012 was part of the roads captured as Umanna- Udi Agu – Ebenebe – Amansi – Awka- and spurring to Umumba Road, Section 2 in Enugu State.
The minister said , “ The contract was awarded in 2012 covering Enugu to Onitsha highway .
“ Because of the lack of appropriate budgeting and funding , all of these projects could not be completed and there were also failures in implementation , so we inherited it .
“ There was also the need to provide for erosion control measures and drains and that have led to the revision of the cost .
“ It was that revision to enable us to complete the road project that was presented , discussed and approved by the council today ( Wednesday ) . ”
Earlier , the Minister of Information and Culture , Lai Mohammed , had said Fashola’ s memo was the only one that “ survived ” at the meeting .
