Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has pledged to complete numerous abandoned projects in the FCT by May next year.
The Minister made this commitment during the inspection tour of abandoned projects in the capital city.
Non- completion of infrastructure projects has gross implications for the environment and they include poor sanitation, land degradation, property value losses, and social crimes.
As beautiful as the Nigerian capital city Abuja is, uncompleted projects are a common sight there.
They range from major bridges, pedestrian bridges, roads, and even buildings, which are not befitting of the environment.
The FCT minister is now on an inspection tour of these uncompleted projects and gives his word that they will be completed before May next year.
The minister also says an increase in construction activities is a sign of a healthy economy while abandoned projects indicate a depressed economy.
He believes ensuring an enabling environment where big infrastructure projects thrive can enable investments in the Nigerian economy.
The federal government has in the past had to augment contract payments so many abandoned projects in the FCT can be completed
