Ms Meeme Felicia, the Public Relations Officer, FCT Satellite Towns Development Department, in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said Aliyu made the call during a visit to the project site.
The contract was awarded in parts to Messrs SCC Nigeria and Kakatar CE Ltd respectively.
Represented by the Coordinator of the department, Mr Obinna Ogwuegbu, the minister expressed pleasure at the rate the work was going on.
He was accompanied to the site by his team of Engineers led by the Director, Regional Infrastructure, Amaechi Obiekwe.
According to the minister, the completion of the road would bring huge relief to the FCT residents when completed.
The minister also enjoined the Satellite Towns development department to put more effort into ensuring that all projects under its purview are expeditiously completed.
Aliyu, who congratulated the coordinator of the department on his 100 days in office, reminded him that the reward for good work is more work.
