The Permanent Secretary, Federal Capital Territory, Engr. John Chukwu, today assured the Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN), Mr. Ban ki-Moon, on Federal Government’s commitment to the completion of the UN building that was bombed in August 2011.

Chukwu gave the assurance after laying of wreath in honour of the 23 victims that died in the incident.

According to him, the government would do everything possible to avoid further delay in the completion of the project.

The permanent secretary challenged Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, the contractor handling the project, to work round the clock in order to complete the project in a record time.

“The contractors already said they would need between five to eight months to get the job fixed but I have asked them to fast track their approach by working 24 hours to get it done within five months.

“We cannot afford to delay here anymore, this project is very important, because Nigeria government is committed to its obligations,” Chukwu said.
