Kuchigoro village to be demolished soon

21 September 2012, 07:37

Abuja - The FCT Minister, Sen. Bala Mohammmed, on Thursday in Abuja, declared that the Kuchigoro village would soon be demolished to meet the set target of the Abuja Master Plan.

He made this known during a road inspection tour to Lugbe in Abuja, stressing that Kuchigoro was among the 19 villages that must face demolition soon.

"We must meet the set goal of the Abuja Master Plan. We are already working on where we will relocate them to," he said.

On the road inspection, he said the road was initially two lanes before the present administration came on
board, but that it had been expanded to 10 lanes to reduce congestion.

He commended Julius Bergers "for doing a great work" and assured Nigerians that the project would be adequately maintained.

"This is the transformation we want for our capital city. This is an evidence of the transformation agenda of Mr President."

Also speaking, Mr Labaran Maku, the Minister of Information, said that the road was a futuristic plan for the FCT.

"This road has helped to ease traffic congestion for residents living along the airport road."

He said that illegal use of roads in FCT must be stopped  because the Federal Government was spending a lot of money on construction and maintenance.           

Speaking earlier, Mr Adamu Ismaila, the Executive Secretary, FCDA, said that the rehabilitation and expansion of the Airport expressway project which consist of Lot 1 and Lot 2 had helped to ease traffic congestion along the airport axis.

Ismaila said that Lot 1 had recorded 72 per cent  completion, 95 per cent completion of FCT 105 interchange and six  river bridges were completed.

He said that Lot 2 had recorded 95 per cent completion, with pedestrian bridges completed interceptor and sewer crossing also completed, among others.
