In May 2023, the government reached an agreement to leverage private-sector investment to improve facilities and operations on selected routes, and revenue generation of over N11.54 trillion in the 25-year concession period.

The programme, which is a Public Private Partnership arrangement in the construction, operations, and maintenance of highways, is designed in such a way that the concessionaires will recoup their investments through toll and non-toll revenues as may be negotiated.
