On Oct. 30, Punchng and other media outlets reported that Julius Berger, a construction giant based in nation’s capital Abuja, has shut down its operations because of security concerns. 

However, a few days later on Nov. 3, a spokesperson for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) issued a statement insisting that that the construction firm would not abandon the capital territory and its people because it’s a partner in the development of Abuja Project. 

During an inspection visit of ongoing projects in the city by Shehu Hadi Ahmad, the executive secretary of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Julius Berger regional manager  Oliver Berger said that the contractor will deliver the critical infrastructural projects that Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) awarded to it and believes in the vision of the FCT.

Engr Shehu Hadi Ahmad also added that he was disheartened to read of the alleged closure of the construction sites by Julius Berger and that the inspection visit was a routine one aimed at accessing the level of work done by the company to ensure that the funds released by the government are put to good use, Daily Trust reported.
