By Ben Adoga, Abuja

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, will today flag off the resurfacing of 47 city centre roads in the FCT.

All 47 roads are in the Asokoro and Wuse districts of the nation’s capital.

FCTA Director of Press, Anthony Ogunleye, in a statement said the exercise was part of the Minister’s commitment to the maintenance and optimisation of public infrastructure as well as ensuring the seamless functioning of essential services in the city.

Recall that Wike had assured FCT residents of the full resurfacing of roads in the city centre and the satellite towns later when he flagged off the resurfacing of Garki Village road three months ago.

Ohunleye further said, “The Asokoro District, known for its significance and strategic importance in the city, will witness comprehensive road rehabilitation aimed at improving accessibility, traffic flow, and overall urban aesthetics.”
