By Ruth Oketunde

Mr. Abdullahi Candido, president of the Abuja City Council (AMAC), on Wednesday inaugurated the rehabilitated asphalt access roads of 750 meters in Pyakasa, a community in the Kabusa district of the regional council.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that other inaugurated projects include a primary health care center in the communities of Gbessa and Kaba, respectively in the neighborhoods of Gui and Gwagwa.

Other projects inaugurated include a 480-meter road with drainage in the community of Toge and the renovation of the Jiwa Chief Palace, among other projects.

Candido, during the inauguration of the projects, explained that the projects were part of his promises to fulfill his democratic mandates to the residents of the regional council.

He said the rehabilitated roads would facilitate interconnectivity with other villages and boost business activities in the regional council.

The president, however, tasked the residents of the communities to protect the infrastructure and ensure that the essence of the development of such infrastructure in their communities is not overcome.

Mr. Gaza Andrew, Construction Manager, AMAC, said the inaugurated roads had multiple culverts at each junction to make the roads durable and stand the test of time.

The leader of the community of Pyakasa, Mr. Bako Josiah, appreciated the chairman of the regional council for development projects.

However, he assured that his community was ready to maintain the projects for the benefit of its residents. (NOPE)
