Senator Ireti Kingibe, the Senator representing the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Saturday lived up to her promise of providing social amenities for residents of the FCT with the commissioning of a road project in Karu, a satellite town in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC).

The construction of the 0.6-kilometre Ishan Road, a project of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, was facilitated by Senator Kingibe. At the Commissioning, Senator Kingibe harped on the necessity for unity.

According to a press release sent by Nana Sani Kazaure, SSA, Media/Press Secretary, to Sen. Kingibe, She said: “As I have come here to commission this project today, I will Insha Allah do many more like that. I am also proud and honoured to be here today and I hope all these things will unify us. Unity is what we need in this country. As I said in my campaign, I am part Hausa, part Yoruba and part Igbo. I consider myself the symbol of Abuja. I am the sister of everybody and I want us to think of each other as brothers and sisters”.

The contract for the construction and rehabilitation of the road was awarded in late 2023 with a 10-week completion period.

After commissioning the road, Senator Kingibe proceeded to Gwagwalada in the South of FCT where she performed the groundbreaking ceremony of a 50-bed Hospital in Dobi, a community in Gwagwalada.
