Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister Malam Muhammad Bello on Wednesday praised the construction company with road maps as it commissioned 24 road signs strategically located in different parts of Abuja, donated by the company as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.
The minister, who was represented at the event by FCTA’s permanent secretary, Olusade Adesola, said the world would be a better place for everyone if well-placed individuals and organizations alike incorporate the culture to give back with their wealth. to society.
Bello said the road map construction company that donated the 24 signage has not only shown its commitment to corporate social responsibility, but set a record that will inspire others.
He said: “I would therefore like to commend Roadmap Construction Ltd for this commendable project and urge more well-meaning organizations to pursue this noble gesture by giving back to society and contributing to building the FCT of our collective to dream.
“Projects like this not only improve the aesthetics of the urban landscape, but also reduce the dangers to life and property caused by accidents on our roads and highways due to insufficient signage”. He claimed.
Earlier in his comments, the Chief Executive Officer of Roadmap Construction Company, Mr. Julius Irumundomon, said that the idea of donating the signage was born 14 years ago when he and his friend suffered greatly to find their desired destination in Maitama Abuja, due to a lack of legible signage.
Irumundomon noted that he was also driven to put the idea into action, by a high sense of patriotism for his homeland.
According to him, he had always dreamed of repeating the good developments he saw in other parts of the world, in his home country, Nigeria.
He said, “What prompted me to do this was what my friend experienced around Maitama 14 tears ago, we were given a direction but couldn’t find the place.
“When I left there, I said that every federal capital you go to in the world has street signs directing you to where to go. I brought the idea to my friend and told him I would go there if the government, the FCT would follow us.
“The minister said if I can do this then some should be put in the Wuye bridge and the Area 1 bridge, but I ended up doing up to 24 signage because I felt just doing 4 wouldn’t do anything.”
