Southern Parkway Abuja, Now Named After Tinubu By Wike – Sixt-Media Lane Consult


Nyesom Wike, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), has named Abuja’s southern parkway after President Bola Tinubu.

The southern parkway stretches from the Christian Centre to Ring Road One and is considered one of the city’s major spines.

Wike made the announcement on Tuesday at the commissioning of the project executed by the FCT administration.

The minister said the project was completed in line with the president’s ‘Renewed Hope Agenda’, 13 years after construction commenced, adding that it would ease free flow of traffic in the FCT.

The southern parkway complements the northern parkway, the major arterial known as Sani Abacha road that runs across Mabushi and terminates at Life Camp.

The project was commissioned by Tinubu who had just returned from an official trip to Lagos, where he flagged off the construction of the Lagos-Calabar coastal highway which began in March.

The president also oversaw the official commissioning of the reconstructed Apapa-Oworonshoki-Ojota expressway and the rehabilitated Third Mainland Bridge.

The president also virtually inaugurated the rehabilitation of 330 roads and bridges nationwide.
