PRESIDENT TINUBU SAYS HE IS PRIORITISING PEOPLE-FOCUSED DEVELOPMENT BY PROVIDING INFRASTRUCTURE AND AMENITIES                                                                                                                                    08-06-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                                President tinubu says his administration is prioritising people-focused development by providing essential infrastructure and amenities that will improve the quality of life.

At the inauguration of engineering infrastructure in Guzape District of the FCT, the President said the Minister of the Territory, Mr. Nyesom Wike, had provided exceptional leadership at a trying time for the country.

“It has been a very challenging time for us in the country. We are still retooling and rejigging our financial system to bring prosperity and relief to the people of this country.

“You have demonstrated the capacity to build a team, lead a team, and deliver on promises. I commend you, well done.

“To all of you here, to the District Head of Guzape, and the representatives, litigation is not the answer. Compensation is the answer.

“Development that is focused on the people for economic prosperity and benefits is what we should pursue.

“Of what value is a swathe of land that is blocked by hills and rocks, and that is inaccessible. Let us talk to our people and come together to help build Nigeria,” the President said.

President Tinubu, who commended the contractor handling the project, emphasised that his commitment to providing infrastructure across the country was not for personal enrichment or aggrandisement.

“I stand here as President; I do not have a plot of land here (Guzape District). But I have the people’s support and the mandate to deliver good quality of life and a living environment.

“That should be enough for all of us to share in the joy of commitment, dedication, perseverance, and the little gifts God has endowed us,” the President said.

The Minister of FCT, Mr. Nyesom Wike, had explained that the contract initially awarded in 2003 at the cost of N14 billion was divided into Lots 1 and 2.

The Minister said the development of the district, which covers 32km of road, had been fraught with litigations, which, however, did not deter the progress of the project.

He said shortly before the present administration assumed office, the cost of the project was revised to N18.17 billion.

Mr. Wike commended the President for not abandoning the project owing to his belief in government as a continuum.

“Since I assumed office as FCT Minister in August 2023, you have never interfered with our work. We are sincerely happy that you gave us the free hand to work,” he said.

The FCT Minister, who appealed to the President to name major roads in Guzape District after literary giants, Chinua Achebe and JP Clark, hinted that the ‘diplomatic area’ in the district will be completed within one year.

In a project overview, the Executive Secretary, FCDA, Alhaji Shehu Ahmad said the area being developed, Guzape District Lot II, was an urban fringe area covering 620 hectares, with 129 hectares encumbered by village settlements.

He said the entire district, Lot 1 and Lot 2, was designed to provide residential, commercial, and recreational facilities covering an entire area of 1,070 hectares of land.

“The Lot 1 area covers an area of 450 hectares, whereas the Lot 2 covers 620 hectares,” the FCDA Executive Secretary said.
