Nyesom Wike, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), says investing in road infrastructure will scale up economic activities in the nation’s capital city.

Wike said this on Wednesday during an inspection of ongoing road projects in Abuja.

One of the roads inspected was the Outer Southern expressway which stretches from A.A Rano through Deeper Life junction.

The road is being constructed by China Geo-Engineering Corporation (CGC) Nigeria limited.


The minister also inspected the Northern N-20 expressway in Jahi district being constructed by Gilmor Construction firm.

“This is what the people want, it is not theory; it is practical, let them see the action. They have lost hope, but hope is coming back through the renewed hope agenda of President Bola Tinubu,” Wike said.

“When I came on board, these roads were abandoned and I had to invite the contractors, and then we sat down and agreed on the way to fund the projects.


“The contractors have assured us that these roads will be completed on time.”

Wike added that some of the projects have been set aside to mark President Bola Tinubu’s one year anniversary.

He added that there would be a lot of commissioning in the days ahead.

The minister praised the contractors for the job done so far and urged them not to reduce the quality of work.


“I am pleased that the people are happy as they are satisfied with what President Tinubu administration is doing,” he said.

“It is not magic; it is a matter of commitment to satisfy our people. When you do the right thing, the people will jubilate.”
