By Ismaila Jimoh, Abuja

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that residents of the Federal Capital Territory will experience improved quality of life owing to some of his administration’s major investments in essential services such as water supply, electricity and road networks.

President Tinubu stated this in company of the FCT Minister, Barr. Nyesom Wike in Abuja while commissioning the engineering infrastructure in Wuye District, Phase II of the Federal Capital City, Thursday.

He said the completion of the Wuye project would significantly improve connectivity and traffic flow within the district and adjoining districts.

Tinubu also reassured Nigerians of his administration’s resolve to prioritize citizen welfare and make it the cornerstone of his development agenda.

He reaffirmed his commitment to building a nation where no one is left behind; emphasizing that his administration views government as a continuum.

According to him: ” The best way to achieve greatness is to look forward, aspire for great results, and not be hindered by obstacles. We must see opportunities in obstacles and seize them”.

“This facility enhances the security of our people, making them the central focus of our developmental efforts, which is the essence of democracy.”

“Our determination to succeed and extend happiness to the teeming population, and bring about prosperity and tangible value of immense proportions to our people is the primary objective of this government,” he added.

Tinubu, while commending FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, with his team, expressed willingness to make personal sacrifices for the welfare and prosperity of Nigerians.

“Your resilience, patience, and unwavering support have been instrumental in making this possible. Projects and results are not realized by chance. They come through thoughtful planning and execution. I am very proud of this achievement”, he said.

The FCT Minister, in his remarks, said that FCT residents had lost hope in the completion of the interchange bridge, linking Wuye and Wuse districts, but now have a reason to rejoice.

Wike disclosed: “The FCT is working due to the President’s significant support. This project, initially awarded in 2009 at the cost of N34 billion, was revised to N74 billion before this administration took office on May 29, 2023.”

Highlighting the 15-year struggle to complete the bridge and the difficulties faced by people and businesses during this period, Wike said: “Thanks to the President’s determination, we have restored hope with this project’s completion.”

According to him, the numerous projects being commissioned in Abuja by the President could not have been possible without his (Tinubu) support such as the exclusion of the FCT from the Treasury Single Account (TSA).

FCT Minister of State, Dr. Mariya Mahmoud, in a also speaking at the occasion, thanked the President for always identifying with the FCT Administration in its projects.

Mahmoud said: “Your Excellencies, we sincerely extend our heartfelt gratitude for joining us on this momentous occasion as we collectively fulfil the mandate of ‘Renewed Hope’ to the residents of Abuja.

“Your dedication and hard work have significantly contributed to the growth and development of our city. We are immensely grateful for your commitment to ensuring the enhancement of our city’s infrastructure, which will undoubtedly benefit generations to come,” the Minister of State added.

Her words: “The sustainable development and growth of any city rely heavily on its infrastructure backbone, particularly in the realm of engineering.”

Earlier, the Executive Secretary, Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Engr. Shehu Hadi-Ahmed, while providing over view of the project, revealed that it comprises the provision of sewer lines, water main, electricity, and telecommunication ducts, among others.
