Nigeria’s Federal Executive Council has approved a roadmap aimed at strengthening the anti-graft crusade in the country.

The approval was given at Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council Meeting presided over by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

He said the roadmap approved by the Federal Executive Council was to consolidate on the achievements recorded so far through enforcement and sanctions.

Contracts

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mohammed Bello, said the council also approved memos for contracts to develop infrastructure in Abuja, the Nigerian capital.

He said the contract would cost N242million while the completion period is six months.

He said the contract would cost N242million while the completion period is six months.

The whole idea of that road is to open all the developments in Phase 2 of the city and to be able to complement the existing development by private sector companies, especially those in the mass housing sector, Bello said.

Others were contracts for the final engineering design for Kado District of the Abuja city; final engineering design for the interceptor sewage lines to link to the Abuja Central Sewage system; and the final engineering design for the Water Treatment Plant and the connecting pipeline network to the remaining tanks for the Abuja Water Master Plan.

He said the four projects were aimed at opening up newer district of the city, providing modern infrastructure to be able to cater for the needs of the current population as well as expanding population in the future.
