Nyesom Wike

The federal capital territory administration (FCTA) has revealed its intention to construct a total of 30-kilometer roads across six Area Councils of the country’s capital.

This was disclosed on Wednesday by the Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike, while receiving the courtesy visit of Sen. Philip Aduda and Mr Zakari Dobi in Abuja.

Aduda was the Senator from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who represented the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in the 9th Assembly.

The minister gave the assurance that the 30-kilometre roads, five in each of the six area councils, would be concluded before May 29, 2024.

According to him, the objective is to decentralize development initiatives, moving them from the city center to the rural areas in the various council regions.

Furthermore, Wike lauded the guests for their teamwork, regardless of their political party differences, in their efforts to advance the development of the FCT.

He pledged to regularly engage with them to acknowledge their contributions to the city’s development, emphasizing that the FCT Administration would collaborate with anyone who has valuable input.

He mentioned that the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) also had also been exempted from the Treasury Single Account (TSA) to promote progress in the capital city.
