At a recent press briefing, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, expressed his concerns about the state of infrastructure in Abuja, questioning whether the city can truly be called a city without basic amenities like good roads and reliable electricity. He criticized the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) for their performance, demanding to see tangible results in the form of rehabilitated roads within a week.

Wike’s remarks were made during a 12-month review of the ministerial sector, where he highlighted the need for upgraded infrastructure in Abuja. He specifically mentioned the rehabilitation of roads in Maitama and Garki, which has since been completed, although with some inconvenience to residents.

In the video start from 24:12 The minister’s commitment to seeing tangible results within a short timeframe is a positive step towards addressing the city’s challenges and creating a more livable and sustainable environment for residents and visitors alike.

In his words;

“When people say Abuja is a City, I ask myself what makes it a City, No good Roads, No light. I said no I called the FCDA and said come what’s your work here, look at the whole street, you can’t have a good road to say it’s a City. I said No, I said I don’t know what you’re doing. I want to see the paper on my table in the next one week. Every street in Maitama, Garki have to be rehabilitated. Today, you can attest to the fact that most of the Roads have been rehabilitated though there was some inconvenience but that’s the part of your own sacrifice”….S££ MOR£
