‘Wike now satisfied with the pace of construction work in FCT’

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has said the decision of President Bola Tinubu to turn the nation’s capital, Abuja, into a huge construction site is to ensure that his Renewed Hope Agenda finds immediate expressions in the lives of residents even before his first anniversary in office.

Wike stated this weekend  after inspecting several ongoing projects across the city.

The minister also revealed that he was satisfied with the pace of work in the various sites, adding that all projects are at 85 percent completion.

He said: “I have to commend the various contractors. The first site we went is one of those areas that by the grace of God, is 85 percent ready. It is one of those interchanges in Wuye. The contractors are keeping to date and their commitment to delivering by the end of May.

“We also went to the Kuje Road. It will open up that area of the council and last time when I went to flag off one of the rural roads, I did say that the contractors were not serious but going back there today, one is very impressed with the level and quality of work.”
