Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has said that President Bola Tinubu has instructed him to pay an equal attention to people in the rural areas.

He said people in these areas must be given attention because they constitute a large part of the population.

Wike said this during the flag off the construction of a 5km access road in Saburi 1 and 2 communities in the Abuja Municipal Area Council, AMAC of the FCT

The road work commences from the Outer Northern Expressway (ONEX) to old Keffi road, near the Dei-Dei International Market in Abuja.

Wike said the road project is part of the six important roads nominated for construction by each of the six Area Council Chairmen in the FCT, as directed by Tinubu.

 

The minister said the construction of these rural roads in the FCT Area Councils would be completed before the end of the year.

“The Chairman of AMAC has said that before now, this road has been a burden. The member representing this constituency has also alluded to that.

“What it meant then was that you had all lost hope. Now, because of the Renewed Hope Agenda of Mr. President, we are bringing back that hope to you.

“I have told the Director in charge of Satellite Town Development Department that as we are meeting on Friday to finalize our budget, you must give this road priority for AMAC”.

 

He added, “Mr President has emphasized that our people in the rural areas must be given attention because they constitute a large part of the population.

“So, it is not only where the elites are living but also where the poor ones are, so that we will be able to reduce the level of insecurity and make economic activities thrive and also help our farmers to bring in their goods.”
