Abuja indigenes hails Bello over Abaji--Rubochi road
Indigenous people of the Federal Capital Territory have commended the minister of the territory, Malam Muhammad Bello, over the rehabilitation of 10.2 kilometers Abaji--Rubochi road project.
The indigenous youths have noted that the road rehabilitation which has been neglected for over 32 years will no doubt boost the economy of the rural dwellers in Kuje and Abaji area councils.
The group under the aegis of Abuja Original Inhabitants Youth Empowerment, in a statement issued by its President, Commander Isaac David, however, revealed that the incumbent minister has broken a 32 years jinx and therefore deserves commendation.
The indigenous youths also called on the FCT Administration to extend the road to Kuje main town aimed at reducing the traffic along Lokoja--Abuja road.
"We want to commend you for the commencement of the rehabilitation of the Abaji -Rubochi road which was last constructed 32 years ago. You have broken a developmental record in the FCT and the indigenes are very happy.
"We pray that Almighty God give you the enablement to extend the road to Kuje main town after this first phase, as a testament of your giant strides in the provision of rural infrastructure.
"The rehabilitation will greatly ease the movement of goods and services in that corridor and energise the rural communities to identify positively with your administration.
"We also plead that other rural roads that constitute threat to communities in the FCT because of their deplorable condition be captured in the current rehabilitation programme to ease traffic," the statement added.
