Why I am always at project sites in Abuja – Wike

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Nyesom Wike, says his constant monitoring of ongoing projects in the territory, Abuja, is to keep contractors on their toes.

Wike stated this in Abuja on Monday, after inspecting ongoing road projects in Guzape and the full-scale development of arterial road ‘N20′ at Jahi District.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the N20 begins from Northern Parkway (Shehu Musa Yar’adua Expressway), to Outer Northern Expressway (Murtala Mohammed Expressway).

The minister explained that his constant and unscheduled visit to project sites was to ensure that the contractors deliver on agreed time and with expected quality.

He said that the contractors had promised to deliver most of the projects by May, adding that he was on their toes to ensure that they deliver as promised.

“We make sure that we go round to see the commitments made by the various contractors and to see whether they are going to fulfill the promises they had made.

“On Saturday, we also had this kind of inspection and today, we went to Guzape, the diplomatic zone and now we are on N20 road.

“The last time I came here, the work was not up to this extent, and I am very much impressed with what I have seen.

“This shows that God willing, by May, they will hand over these projects to us and then we will hand them over to the public,” he said. (NAN)
