“We have turned Abuja to a construction site.” says minister Nyesom Wike


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Nyesom Wike, says the Bola Tinubu administration has turned Abuja into a construction site.

Wike stated this when the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Rochard Montgomery, visited him in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said that construction and other development activities had come to a halt in Abuja prior to the Tinubu-led government.

“Before now, it does appear that there were no activities in Abuja, with many residents complaining that the city is so docilenand nothing was happening."

“However, since we came on board, you can see that activities have come up in terms of infrastructure, particularly road infrastructure."

“We can proudly say that we have turned Abuja to a construction site." he said.
