1. INTRODUCTION
The Nigerian Federal Road Network totals approximately 35,000km in length, much of which is still in need of further expansion, rehabilitation and presently being hampered by limited budgetary allocations. The development of the Nigerian Federal road network presents an excellent investment opportunity for private sector participation. The Federal Government of Nigeria through the FMW&H is desirous of inviting interested firms or consortium to participate in the qualification process for the selection of concessionaires through an International Competitive Bidding (ICB). The terms and conditions for project implementation with selected concessionaires will be set out in the Concession Agreement to be mutually negotiated.

2. PROJECT OBJECTIVE
The overall objective of the selection process would be the successful procurement of concessionaires with the technical competence, managerial capacity, and financial resources to expand, re-align, rehabilitate and operate the road infrastructure for defined concession tenor for the optimal benefit of the country. The FMW&H developed the HDMI through the PPP arrangement and now invites interested firms or consortium to participate in a value-added concession initiative. The initiative entails expansion (including interchanges where necessary) and rehabilitation of the entire right of way whilst maximizing its economic viability to ensure the long-term sustainability of the initiative.
