Tinubu commissions Wuye flyover, applauds Wike’s focus  

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Thursday, commissioned the Wuye bridge interchange, linking Wuse and Wuye districts in the Federal Capital City (FCC), with a pledge to ensure the welfare of the citizenry.

Tinubu, while addressing residents and dignitaries, reassured Nigerians of his administration’s resolve to prioritise their welfare and make it the centerpiece of his national development agenda.

He said: “The best way to achieve greatness is to look forward, aspire for great results, and not be hindered by obstacles. We must see opportunities in obstacles and seize them.”

He said the completion of the Wuye project would significantly improve traffic flow within and around the district.

“This facility enhances the security of our people, making them the central focus of our development efforts, which is the essence of democracy.

“Our determination to succeed and extend happiness to the teeming population, and bring about prosperity and tangible value of immense proportions to our people is the primary objective of this government,” Tinubu added.

The president, who commended the FCT minister, Barr Nyesom Wike, and his team for completing the project that was initiated in 2009, expressed his willingness to make personal sacrifices for the welfare and prosperity of Nigerians.

“Your resilience, patience, and unwavering support have been instrumental in making this possible. Projects and results are not realized by chance. They come through thoughtful planning and execution. I am very proud of this achievement,” he said.

While speaking, Wike revealed that the residents of the FCT had lost hope in the completion of the interchange bridge but now have a reason to rejoice because of the support from the President.

According to him, “The FCT is working due to the President’s significant support. This project, initially awarded in 2009 at a cost of N34 billion, was revised to N74 billion before this administration took office on May 29, 2023,” the minister said.
