Number of paved roads in Nigeria

How many paved roads are there in Nigeria?

50000 km paved

When it comes to the number of paved roads in Nigeria, statistics do not look too good.  The main idea is that the performance of the Nigerian roads sector has not been satisfactory.  There is an enormous potential for growth and development, but figures do not look too good.  It is important to know that road transportation in Nigeria controls over 95% of all surface transportation.  Believe it or not, only 80% of federal roads in Nigeria are partially paved.   Keep in mind that the entire roads in the country are just a bit less that 200,000km of Federal, State and local road.  Believe it or not, just about 50,000km is paved.
