Their commitment to rectifying past shortcomings and ensuring investments do not go to waste is worth noting as President Bola Tinubu clocks 100 days in office.

 

Dr. Betta Edu, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, is on a mission to transform the N-Power scheme. Established by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016, N-Power aimed to combat youth unemployment and boost social development. However, it faced challenges, including delayed stipend payments to beneficiaries.

Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has set his sights on resolving lingering issues in the sector. One such issue is the ₦85 billion contract for infrastructure development in the Wasa Affordable Housing project in Wasa District, Abuja. Originally awarded at ₦26 billion in 2014, the contract’s cost ballooned to ₦85 billion in 2018. Yet, only 21.4% of the work has been completed.

Originally estimated at ₦67 billion and later revised to ₦92 billion, the second runway project aims to alleviate the increasing traffic congestion in Abuja and address flight delays caused by VIP movements. Keyamo described it as a “low-hanging fruit” that would serve as a vital alternative to the existing runway.
