Wike approves Abuja maiden infrastructure investment expo 


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has approved Abuja maiden infrastructure investment expo initiative to explore strategic areas that will attract investment opportunities and boost development.


Senior Special Assistant on Legal and Multilateral Cooperation to the minister, Benedict Daudu, disclosed this weekend during the first meeting of a committee that will fast-track Abuja infrastructure investment expo proposed to be held in the first half of 2024.


Daudu who said all over the world, governments partner with private sector for development,  added that the expo is targeted at investors who are interested in providing infrastructure for all sectors for accelerated development in the nation’s capital in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.


He revealed that the event will attract both local and foreign investors that will avail them the opportunity to partner with FCT in line with government guidelines under Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement and make Abuja a smart city under the watch of the minister.
The SSA added that the plan will also bring about unparallel infrastructure development to most districts or communities in need of basic infrastructure that would put Abuja in a more global stage.
