Abuja light rail set for ride, promise made, promise kept – Wike


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT),  Nyesom Wike Monday inspected the facilities of the Abuja light rail project, preparatory to President Tinubu’s flag off of commercial activities to mark his one year in office.


Wike, in an earlier inspection of the rail project observed some minor things that needed to be corrected.


“We are good to go. It is promise made and promise kept. First of all, we are very happy that all our efforts have come to fruition. It is no longer story, but a reality.”


On Tinubu’s performance in one year, he said it is too short for any meaningful contribution.

“So you are asking me to rate myself, however, if you say so, you can see that Mr. President has done very well, not only in physical infrastructure, but human capital development. Nothing in this world is better than career prospect. I am sure the civil servant in the FCT is very happy. Their hopes have been rekindled. Their hopes have been restored.


“Mr. President has done very well. He is reassuring Nigerians that he is committed to delivering dividends of democracy. There are so many area of attention, one year is really not enough for you to expect 100 percent, but what you’ve seen on ground, there is hope for Nigerian.”
