The Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Bello, has given assurance that the current administration would complete all abandoned projects in Abuja so as to stimulate desired economic activities.
Bello said this when he and the FCT Permanent Secretary, Dr Babatope Ajakaiye, paid an unscheduled visit to the Malaysian Gardens Estate yesterday in Abuja.
A report by the Newes Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted him as saying that the administration was already working towards resolving problems stalling the major projects in and around the FCT.
Said he: “We will do our best to ensure that all abandoned projects in the Federal Capital Territory, be they private sector or government driven, must be completed.
“Each time a project is started and not completed, no matter how much money that is spent, it adds no value to the city.
“And for us in the city, we want projects to be completed for maximum benefits.”
He said the completion of abandoned projects would engender economic activities in the city, so that the purpose for which such huge expanse of land was allocated must have been achieved.
“We are a government that want to solve problems and I assure you these problems would definitely be solved,” the minister declared.
