The Federal Capital Territory Administration, will complete access roads to the institution and Research District, Jabi, Abuja where some of the major academic and research institutions in the nation’s capital are located.
Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Barrister Ezenwo Nyesom Wike made this pledge in Abuja on Monday, September 4, 2023, when he led the FCT Minister of State Dr Mariya Mahmoud and heads and officers of relevant agencies of the FCTA on inspection of projects.
Barrister Wike assured that the access road to the Institution and Research District, where very notable institutions including the EFCC Corporate Headquarters, the Body of Benchers Building, Baze University, Federal Medical Centre, Institute of Human Virology amongst others are located would soon be completed.
The FCT Minister also visited the Kabusa Junction along the Apo Mechanic village where some shanties were recently cleared by the Development Control Department. The Minister who commended the department for removing the shanties, said perimeter fencing would be introduced in the area to prevent miscreants from returning to the cleared portion.
The Minister expressed displeasure over the terms of agreement between the FCT Administration and the private developers involved in the construction of the houses said the FCT Administration will review the agreement to ensure fairness.
Barrister Wike also restated that the FCT Administration, going forward will only award contracts based on the availability of funds to start and complete the projects. He said a situation where contracts are awarded and later abandoned, due to the lack of funds, will no longer be encouraged.
