Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Musa Bello Muhammad, Tuesday, assured speedy work to complete the multi-million-Naira modern Nyanya transport terminal, almost Barely two years after a bomb explosion destroyed it.
Bello gave this assurance when he and the FCT Permanent Secretary, Dr. Babatope Ajakaiye paid a visit to the old Nyanya bus terminal bombed by terrorists in 2014.
The Minister further visited the new Nyanya Transport terminal under construction which is about 62 percent complete, and is expected to gulp a total sum of N628,265,998.63.
The development of a new Nyanya bus terminal was conceived by the FCT Administration to provide a secure and convenient facility with adequate services for use by commuters.
Bello however expressed displeasure over the commencement of the project without taking into account the construction of an access road to the new terminal.
He wondered why such a gigantic project would start without the award of contract for the construction of the necessary road network to connect motorists in and out of the terminal.
The Minister reiterated that everything would be done to ensure that the terminal was completed and made operational to tackle traffic congestion in that axis, and also improve security of the motoring public.
The construction work which began in the first quarter of 2015 is expected to provide arrival terminal building, departure terminal building, security block, Bank, Driver’s lodge, maintenance block, communication block and commercial block.
Other structures under construction also include a church, a mosque, an administrative block as well as public conveniences.
