He stated that the FEC approved all nine memoranda from the ministry which are expected to improve infrastructure in the city.

“The second contract was for the preparation of the electricity master plan for Phase IV of the Federal Capital City at the cost of N189 million with a completion of ten months. As you already know, phases I and II have their own master plan.
“The third contract is the design of infrastructure for what we called institution and research district which is in phase III of the Federal Capital City at the cost of N197 million.
