FG Closes Lokoja-Obajana-Kabba Road For 7 Weeks For Repairs
The Federal Ministry of Works and Housing Friday announced the closure of Obajana junction on Lokoja-Obajana-Kabba road for repairs.
The ministry said that the closure would last for seven weeks to facilitate the reconstruction of the road and culverts washed away by floods in 2021.
The Federal Controller of Works in Kogi, Jimoh Kajogbola, announced this to newsmen in Lokoja yesterday.
“Obajana-Kabba road will also be closed from Friday to Aug. 15 when it will be reopened,” he said.
Kajogbola described as “embarrassing and unfortunate” the unending gridlocks and accidents being witnessed at the Obajana junction and the entire Lokoja-Obajana-Kabba road.
“In view of this closure, traffic from the Kabba junction-Obajana-Kabba road is now being diverted to Kabba junction-Okene-Kabba to give room for easy construction work.
“Therefore, motorists from north-central and south-western parts of the country plying the Obajana-Kabba highway in Kogi should use the alternative Lokoja-Okene-Kabba road,” he said.
