The Honourable Minister for Works, Engr David Nweze Umahi has assured Nigerians of the full completion of the Abuja-Kaduna Highway in the next twenty-four months.

Umahi stated this Friday during an on site inspection visit of the ongoing construction project in Kaduna which is being undertaken by leading construction company, Julius Berger Nig Plc.

The Works Minister who was joined on the inspection visit by the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Mr. Wale Edun and the Managing Director Julius Berger, Dr. Engr Lars, noted that Julius Berger Nig Plc has the capacity to execute quality jobs if properly empowered financially, stressing that the presence of the Honourable Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, is an attestation of the commitment of the Federal Goverment under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in his Renewed Hope Agenda to ensure that Nigerians move around on good roads at all times.

Speaking at the Construction Yard of Julius Berger Nig Plc in Kaduna, Mr. Wale Edun said funds for the completion of the project would not be an issue as Mr. President is concerned about the project. He assured Julius Berger management that sourcing and provision of funds will not any way, become a hindrance to the completion of the project.

The Abuja-Kaduna-Kano has been ongoing for years that has since exceeded its initial completion date scheduled 36 months as revealed by the previous administration.
