Construction of a new city gate for The Federal
Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) located
at the Kuje Junction, Along Umaru Musa
Yar’Adua Expressway (airport road) is set to cost
a grand total of N64 billion.
Leadership Newspaper is reporting that “The
new city gate, according to the administration,
comprises conference and parade grounds,
botanical gardens and a five star hotel. Others
are shopping arcades, amphitheatres, cable car
stations that will go from south to north and a
monorail system.
Director, department of public buildings, Federal
Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Arch
Bernard Lot, who disclosed this while addressing
a press conference, said the project would be
floated through Public Private Partnership (PPP)
model and the administration was currently
looking for investors.”
Not exactly sure why this is a priority for Abuja,
considering just outside the city there are
numerous slums that can do well with that kind
of money and infrastructure rebuild.
