Some residents of karu site area of Abuja has commended the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) for the ongoing rehabilitation works on dilapidated major link road and drainage facilities, including other infrastructural projects within the area.

A cross section of the residents, who told Peoples Daily that the place have suffered neglect for several years, however expressed their excitement and hope that when the ongoing works are completed, it would add more colour to the site, thereby improving their living condition.

According to one, Usman Musa, good access and link roads are vital to the development of any community, and providing such amenities will no doubt boost the residential suitability of Karu site.

He adds: “The ongoing infrastructural projects in the area are well over due, and if completed will be a remarkable legacy for this present FCT administration.

“Karu site was initially designed for lower civil servant cadre and other low income earners, but today it has grown into a mini metropolitan city within the big Abuja city, which accommodates thousands of residents.”

Another resident, Mr. Chris Olukolade, also commended the Satellite Towns Development Department the FCTA, for heeding to the plea of the residents, by taken the steps to change the face of roads in the area.

According to him, a mistake was made during the early design of the area, as the link roads have no drainage system shouldering them, resulting in the roads been washed away.

On her part, a shop owner in the area, Mrs. Nwanne Chidi, said the state of the roads before was embarrassing, but the ongoing rehabilitation project, will open the area more for her business and other commercial activities.

“Karu is a centre piece that links the popular Nyanya / Mararaba towns as well as the Abuja city centre, therefore transforming the area is a bold step in the right direction for this administration,” she stressed.

A visit round some of the projects, some of the labourers on site, expressed confidence that with the way things are going, coupled with pressures the site engineer is putting on them , the work may be rounded up before the mid October.
