The Minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike, has inaugurated the resurfacing of 189 roads and remedial work on bridges in the Maitama, Garki, and Utako districts on Tuesday in Abuja.
The roads cover 57 kilometres across the three districts, all in Abuja Municipal Area Council.
The minister said the measure was part of a commitment to maintain and optimise public infrastructure in the federal capital territory.
According to him, the project was also part of efforts to renew the hope of residents in good governance in line with the “Renewed Hope’’ agenda of President Bola Tinubu.
He urged Nigerians to believe in President Tinubu’s “Renewed Hope’’ agenda, stressing that the policies and programmes were not intended to make the people suffer.
Wike also called on residents to be patient, as the resurfacing of the roads would cause them some inconvenience.
“You cannot talk about development without making sacrifices. There must be inconveniences. After the inconveniences, you will benefit,’’ he said.
The minister hailed the National Assembly and FCT area council chairmen for their support in delivering the dividends of democracy to FCT residents.
