Wike tours FCT’s abandoned projects, vows to complete road projects before end of Q1 2024

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday, toured sites of various abandoned projects in Nigeria’s political capital city promising to complete the construction of B6 and B12 roads, linking Constitution Avenue to City Gate, Abuja, in the next seven months.

Wike, who gave the assurance after a tour of some abandoned projects in Abuja, added that the renovation of the Federal Secretariat would also be completed within seven to eight months.

One of the abandoned projects visited was the Vice President’s residence, awarded since 2010.

Another project visited was the residence of the presiding officers of the National Assembly, close to the National Assembly complex, awarded in 2009.

The minister, in company of the Minister of State for FCT, Dr Mariya Mahmoud, and the Permanent Secretary, FCT Administration, Adesola Olusade, also visited Millennium Tower construction site, at Central Area, Abuja.

The Millennium Tower is a multifunctional edifice with facilities for cultural exposition, tourism, socialisation, recreation, hospitality, and commercial activities.

Showing his usual pragmatic disposition as he dropped his assurances, Wike said that he does not like giving excuses, adding that he would do the best he could to deliver some of the projects.

“The projects that the ministry cannot deliver, I would run to President Bola Tinubu for help. All of these projects must be completed,” he said.
