Others are Kano-Katsina, Lokoja-Benin, Enugu-Port Harcourt, Ilorin-Jebba, Lagos-Abeokuta and Lagos-Badagry.
Asein, in a statemebnt by the Director of Press, Boade Akinola, clarified that the HDMI was intended to draw in speculation and subsidizing.
The minister is working with the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC), Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning and different partners on the drive.
