Minister, Federal Capital Territory Administration, Nyesom Wike has warned Arab Contractors handling the Kuje-Airport Road junction and other road projects in the territory to take the job seriously or risk revocation of contracts.
The minister, who stated this in Kuje yesterday while flagging off a five- Kilometer rural road in Kuje area council under the FCT Satellites Town Development Agency of the FCT administration, noted that the slow pace of work on the airport road shows unseriousness on the part of the contractor.
Wike also warned the company handling the construction of the five kilometers road to work within the specified time, that his administration will not entertain any excuse for failure to deliver on the set time to handover the projects.
The minister also told the residents of Kuje, that his administration was not only concentrating on roads constructions, that in two weeks’ time, FCT Administration under his watch would flag off total rehabilitation of over 40 classrooms of schools in FCT, as well as hospitals and the completion of most of abandoned projects that littered the federal capital city.
He however called for the cooperation of the grass-root in rooting out insecurity, underdevelopment, unemployment, poverty, hunger and other challenges, facing the residents of the federal capital, with appreciation to President Bola Tinubu’s support to change the face of FCT.
Wike maintained that as soon as President Tinubu returns to the country, his administration will send its statutory budget for the National Assembly approval, while thanking the National Assembly for the support received so far from the federal legislators through their committees on FCT matters.
The minister of state for FCT, Mariya Mahmoud in her message at the flag off noted that the road construction which is aimed at enhancing productivity, generating employment will also help to build local community inclusiveness to unlock the grass root potentials.
Mahmoud noted that the road project is a testament of Tinubu’s administrations towards improving rural infrastructures at satellite towns, area councils which she said is not limited to area councils alone but the entire country.
