‘New FCT Roads Will Be Ready By May 2024’ – Wike by GuruboiNaija: 7:04am On Nov 23, 2023
Federal Capital Territory Minister Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday, inspected more road projects that are expected to be completed by May 2024.

The projects inspected include the expansion of the Southern Expressway from Villa Roundabout to OSEX/Ring Road I (RRI) Junction, including four interchanges.

Others are the full-scope development of arterial road N20 from the Northern Parkway to the Outer Northern Expressway (ONEX), with spurs being undertaken by Gilmore and the access road to Body of Benchers in the Institution and Research District.

The minister explained that the inspection was part of efforts to ensure that the road projects meet expected standards. He expressed satisfaction with the progress of the ongoing road projects and assured that arrangements have been made for funding to ensure that they are completed within schedule.

Wike said President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had directed him to ensure that the projects are well funded, adding that funds from the FCT’s 2023 supplementary budget would also be channelled to these projects to ensure their completion.

The FCT Minister, who disclosed that a lot of road projects in the FCT would be completed and commissioned by May next year, said: “The contractors have assured us that these roads will be completed on time and we believe, by the special grace of God, they are part of those projects earmarked for the celebration of one year in office of Mr President.”


Speaking further, the minister said: “We have made arrangements for funding. Mr President has said several times that he does not want excuses. He has given me that directive.

“They have approved the supplementary budget and we believe any moment from now we will see further funding, which would be channelled to most of these projects. So, you won’t hear complaints about no funding like they have said last time.”


On the quality of the road projects, Wike said: “The contractors have done very well, very quality jobs. I commend them and I appeal to them not to lower the standard. They have also assured us that they are going to complete them.”

Wike further stated that economic activities will improve in the FCT on completion of the road projects and noted that they would also help to renew the hope of the people and improve their confidence in the government.

“This is what the people want. It is not theories and theories. It is practical. Let them see action. They have lost hope but with the President’s Renewed Hope Agenda, hope is coming back to the people. They now have confidence in governance,” he said.

Addressing the gathering of residents who came to show their support and appreciation, the minister informed them that President Tinubu is determined to bring back the lost hope in the FCT by completing the road projects.

He said, “I assure you that by May 2024, within the next six to seven months, these roads will be completed.”

The minister also reiterated the resolve of the FCT Administration not to embark on any project without the availability of funds.

Just have good welfare for FCTA workers and manage the infrastructure along with it.


No worker wants to stay hungry to admire how beautiful Abuja is while you walk around receiving all the accolades.

They should come and expand mararaba - keffi road.

The lady administration did the expansion and stopped at Nyanya boundary between Abuja and Nasarawa state.

80% of people living in karu local govt are working in Abuja. That is why there is always hold up in that axis.

I hope Wike and the minister for works will think in that direction.
