Recall that the park was closed down at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Federal Capital Territory Minister, Muhammad Bello has reopened the popular Millennium Park two years after it was closed down.
The park was closed down at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bello explained that the event was more than just reopening of the park, but also appreciating the God Almighty for “having taken us safely throughout the difficult time.”
He also appealed to the media and the public to support the FCTA’s efforts towards rediscovering Abuja from what it was meant to be by the founding fathers.
His words; “Today signifies a milestone for the city. A day when officially our own Millennium Park in Abuja will be opened after over two years as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“For us in the city, this occasion today is more than just the reopening of the park but appreciating God Almighty for having taking us safely through all these difficult times.
“More importantly it is a day when we are going to say thank you Salini Nigeria Ltd., for being a very reliable partner and corperate citizen in Abuja, who have single handedly constructed this park over 22 years ago,” he said.
