The Chinese construction giant, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation Ltd. (CCECC), has committed to completing the Abuja light rail project within 8 months.

According to a statement issued on Wednesday by Stanley Nkwocha, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Communications, Office of the Vice President, this commitment aligns with the determination of President Tinubu’s administration to enhance infrastructure development across the country.

The statement mentioned that Vice President Kashim Shettima extracted this commitment from the management of CCECC when its Chairman, Mr Jason Zhang, led some members of his management team on a courtesy call at the Presidential Villa today.

Shettima described CCECC as part of Nigeria’s history, stating that the Chinese construction giant has played a pivotal role in developing Nigeria’s landmark projects.

He added that their commitment to the development of Nigeria and Africa is commendable.

The statement quoted him as saying, “You have been in this country for 42 years. We have to commend you for all the beautiful initiatives and support over the years.

We share a lot in common with the people of China, just as you have been with us through thick and thin. You have the financial firepower and the willingness to support Nigeria and other African countries without interfering in our local politics. This we appreciate a lot.”

Vice President Shettima assured CCECC that the present administration will sustain the existing relationship with the company and the people of China, saying the Abuja rail project, like others, remains dear to President Bola Tinubu and the Nigerian people.

Speaking earlier, the Managing Director of CCECC, David Waig, reiterated the company’s commitment to delivering the project within the stipulated period, saying CCECC will go above board and leave no stone unturned in ensuring the delivery of the Abuja light rail line by May 2024.

He called on the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) to engage an operational company that will quickly oversee the smooth takeoff of the rail project.
