On May 1, 2024, the administration of President Bola Tinubu is set to mark its one year in office and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, says there will be enough evidence to show. Like the Gen Zs will say, “evidence chock”.

As a matter of fact, Wike says his administration is fulfilling the promises he made to residents in the territory.

The projects visited by the Minister include:


The Construction of the Southern Parkway from the Christian Centre to Ring Road 1
Full scope development of the Outer Southern Expressway (OSEX) from Villa Roundabout to Ring Road 1.

The Construction of the Vice President’s official residence.

Others are the Completion of B6 and B12 Circle Road, also known as Independence and Constitution Avenue, and the full scope development of the Arterial Road, N20 from Northern Parkway (Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Expressway) to Outer Northern Expressway (Murtala Mohammed Expressway).

The Promise

The minister recounted a promise he made to residents of the FCT to complete the ongoing road projects by May this year.


With the aim of showcasing the achievements of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s first year in office.

Wike said the projects were on course to being completed within schedule.


Also, he said that the projects were about 98% completed.

The FCT minister commended the contractors for keeping to their promise to deliver the projects by May this year.

A Promise Kept

According to him, “this is a promise made and a promise kept.

“You are aware that we did promise the residents of Abuja that during the one-year celebration that we will have a lot of projects that Mr. President will inaugurate.

“We’ve been to the Southern Parkway which Setraco is doing, almost 98% ready.

“We’ve been to OSEX which is being done by CGC. You can agree with me that that is just a beauty.

“The landscape is wonderful and that is also almost 98% completed.

“We went to the VP’s residence. Julius Berger has said all the furniture, everything is ready.
All they are doing now is what we call finishing touches.

“From there, we went to B6, B12, which they have also said will be ready for commissioning and now we are here in N20, which is 98% ready.

The Journey So Far

Furthermore, the minster described the journey so far as a tough one for Nigerians.

“The hardship came with a whole new energy, in fact, that is the reason Nigerians choose to call it ‘Renewed Shege’.

“Things got worse when we started hearing ‘Shege Pro Max’, by this time many Nigerians no longer saw the need to live.

“Suicide reports became a trend.

“However, the President stands firm on his words: “These are the little sacrifices we have to pay”.

The efforts of the President and his cabinet cannot be ignored.

Indeed, President Tinubu has been on his toes when it comes to piloting the affairs of the country.

His policies and approach leave Nigerians with little beam of hope; hence, many believe that the president is on the right path towards restoration.
