Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has promised to complete the construction of B6 and B12 roads, linking Constitution Avenue to City Gate, Abuja, in the next seven months.
Mr Wike, who gave the assurance after a tour of some abandoned projects in Abuja on Thursday, 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.
Mr Wike said that he does not like giving excuses, adding that he would do the best he can to deliver some of the projects, adding that those that the ministry cannot deliver, he would run to President Bola Tinubu for help.
