Sequel to the planned usage of the Kaduna International Airport for flights in and out of Abuja, while the runway of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, undergoes rehabilitation works, the federal government has awarded contract for the emergency repairs of the Abuja-Kaduna dual carriageway.
A statement from the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing signed by the Director of Information (Works sector), Mr. Bisi Agbonhin, said the contract for the emergency repairs of the 164-kilometre road was awarded to Messrs CGC (Nig.) Ltd. at a cost of N1,058,958,958.54 with a completion period of 50 days.
The statement said the procurement processes for the award of the contract for the rehabilitation of the Abuja-Kano dual carriageway, which had earlier been captured in the 2016 budget, are on-going and would be awarded as soon as a “Certificate of No Objection” is received from the Bureau for Public Procurement (BPP).
