The FCT Administration has given assurance that the N640 million abandoned office complex of the FCT Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board will soon be completed.
The FCT Minister of State, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, gave the assurance during an assessment tour of the project in Abuja.
Dr Aliyu lamented that the 5 storey building located at the Kaura district of Abuja was only at about 20 percent completion level since its commencement in 2015.
Dr Aliyu promised the Administration’s readiness to make funds available to enable the contractors carry on with the work.
The minister further assured that the administration would ensure that genuine contractors are paid based on the level of work done.
Earlier in his remarks, the contactor, Ejike Amu-Nnadi told the minister that the project would be completed in 20 months.
Mr Nnadi who thanked the minister for the ‘Political Will’ demonstrated so far, reiterated the commitment of his firm to deliver quality job comparable to international standards.
