Chairman, Abuja Municipal Area Council, AMAC, Hon. Christopher Zakka Maikalangu on Tuesday, inspected some ongoing projects in four political wards of zone A in the council.

Addressing Journalists after inspecting the projects with members of his cabinet, Maikalangu said the projects were in fulfilment of the promises he made during campaigns.

Speaking at Kpeyegyi community, the AMAC chairman said the road projects will be completed between three weeks.

According to him, the contractors have been linking the delay in the work to rainy season, which he said the rainy season will soon be over and there would not be reason for excuses.

Maikalangu said: “I’m happy with the progress of the projects so far, but the contractors must deliver in line with the required standards.

“We appeal to the communities where the projects are sited to corporate with the contractors, else the project will be shifted to another community that needs it”

He stated that any contractor that fails to meet the standard would not be paid.

The chairman inspected a 500kv eleven lines energized transformer at Kugbo community, construction of access road by chief palace, Jikwoyi phase 2, construction of 10,000 litres motorized borehole at Angwan-Gade, Jikwoyi and rehabilitation of Kpegyi phase 2 asphalt and extension of access road all in Karu ward.
