Tinubu to inaugurate FCT projects from May 27 to June 6, says Wike

POLITICS DIGEST- President Bola Tinubu has approved May 27 to June 6 as Federal Capital Territory Week to inaugurate various projects executed under his administration.

The FCT Minister Nyesom Wike stated this while inspecting some projects in preparation for the inauguration to celebrate Mr Tinubu’s one year in office.

“With the approval of Mr President, we believe that from May 27, we shall begin the inauguration of various projects, which will end on June 6.

“Particularly on May 27, President Tinubu will inaugurate commercial operations of the Abuja Light Rail, also known as the Abuja Metro Line, and we will carry out the final inspection of the project on May 20,” he said.

Mr Wike also expressed confidence that the vice president’s residence along Aso Drive would be completed and may be inaugurated on June 6.

He explained that the nine-day inauguration activities would demonstrate the Tinubu-led administration’s determination to renew Nigerians’ hope.

He added, “We have a lot of projects being executed that will be inaugurated. There are so many projects that I cannot begin to list them.

“We are happy; the contractors are meeting up, and all the promises made have been fulfilled.

“We have also fulfilled our part by making sure that we make the needed cash available and that none of the contractors are complaining about cash.”

The minister added that other projects, such as the construction of bus terminals and the FCT Court of Appeal Division, would be inaugurated within the period.

Regarding the non-functionality of some of the streetlights in parts of the city, Mr Wike explained that some were being worked on while others were being tested.

He assured the residents that the streetlights would come on once the contractors finished working on them.

“We believe that before the inauguration, you will see that most of the streetlights will be on,” the minister said.

When asked whether he was being distracted by the development in Rivers, Mr Wike simply said, “I am not distracted. If I am distracted, you won’t see this performance.

“I focus on my work. So, I am not interested. I am the Minister of FCT, and work is going on. Why will I be distracted? I don’t even think about it at all.”
