President Tinubu’s style of leadership achieving desired results, says Wike Tinubu inaugurates B6, B12, and Circle Roads in the Central Area

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio has hailed the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike for delivering high standard of infrastructural development in the nation’s capital.


Akpabio, who was representing President Bola Tinubu, said this during the inauguration of B6, B12, and Circle Roads in the Central Area, FCT on Thursday.


He said “Nyesom Wike, I congratulate you. You have not disappointed Nigeria and promise to continue to support you in all you do.


“I will like to appreciate the minister of FCT and all the stakeholders, your hard work and high standard of quality has made this achievement possible and as we celebrate, let’s recognize that our work is far from being over. Congratulations to all Nigerians.”


Also speaking during the event, Wike stated that the leadership style of President Bola Tinubu is achieving desired results in the territory.


According to the minister, leadership is key, stressing that with the right leadership, you get the right results.


“Because we have the right leadership, now we are getting the right results.”


He said that the completion of the B6, B12 and Circle Roads was awarded on May 14, 2007, at N48.5 billion and revised to N98.8 billion in Jan. 2021.


He pointed out that the project was ongoing for 17 years, but Tinubu completed it in just one year in office due to good leadership.


He, however, complained that the Ministry of Finance building had encroached into the portion of the road and appealed to Tinubu to intervene.


This, he said, was critical to enable the contractor to complete the portion of the road.

“There is supposed to be a road from B12 connecting with Ahmadu Bello Way by the finance bridge, but the ministry of finance has encroached into the road.


“We have pleaded with the ministry to allow us to do the road. We are all working for the same government, and we don’t want to use force to go and destroy the building.


“We gave them the land, but they encroached on the way.


“I want to plead with Mr. President to talk to them, so that we will be able to complete the road for the interest of the public,” Wike said.


He reiterated President Tinubu’s commitment to complete all ongoing projects in FCT, adding that 58 per cent of the 2024 FCT capital budget was set aside for completion of all ongoing projects. G
