‘Abaji-Rubochi road for com­ple­tion soon’

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Terkula Igidi

The re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of the 10.2km Abaji-Rubochi road by the FCT Satel­lite Towns De­vel­op­ment De­part­ment (STDD) will soon be com­pleted, Mr. Ishaku Tanko Ya­mawo, the Co­or­di­na­tor of STDD has said.

Ya­mawo, who su­per­vised the project this week, said he was im­pressed with the level of work done though it was still in the rainy sea­son.

He said the con­trac­tor, Messrs Sa­habi Li­man and Sons Ltd., had worked hard to take the project to about 70 per cent com­ple­tion, hav­ing done earth works, side drains and as­phalt.

The co­or­di­na­tor ex­plained that Abaji-Rubochi road was con­structed in the 80s and had de­te­ri­o­rated over time, thereby sub­ject­ing res­i­dents to hard­ships.

He said the FCT Min­is­ter, Hon. Muham­mad Musa Bello, was pas­sion­ate about the satel­lite towns and would con­tinue to do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to al­le­vi­ate the suf­fer­ing of the peo­ple.

Ya­mawo said the work, which com­menced on May 22, 2018, would be com­pleted as soon as the rains sub­sided and ap­pealed to the peo­ple to co­op­er­ate with the con­trac­tor and the de­part­ment to serve them bet­ter.
