… Launches AMAC’s Landmark Projects
Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has reaffirmed the Federal Capital Territory Administration’s (FCTA) commitment to developing rural communities, in line with presidential deliverables.
She said this at the official inauguration of landmark projects carried out by the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), noting that the FCT Administration has stayed focused on completing all projects rather than abandoning any, in keeping with the current administration’s policy of continuity.
The newly constructed office block, Jiwa Community Town Hall, Primary Health Care Centre at AMAC Housing Estate in Sabo Lube, and Block of Classrooms at Zhidna are among the projects inaugurated by the minister.
Aliyu noted that while the government strives to provide essential infrastructure and maintain existing ones, given the limited resources at its disposal, it cannot do so alone, and she urged residents of benefiting communities to justify the government’s investment in their communities by ensuring proper maintenance of these projects for the areas’ overall development.
According to him ; “In line with the current Administration’s philosophy of continuity, we in the FCT Administration have remained focused on completing every project rather than abandoning any.
“As we proceed on the onerous task of developing the FCT and meeting the yearnings of its growing population, I wish to reiterate the commitment that we shall continue to do our best in the FCT Administration to break new frontiers in pursuit of excellence. Governance is centred on service delivery and our mandate demands no less”.
Aliyu, however, commended the leadership of Abuja Municipal Area Council for taking the lead in infrastructural provisions to rural communities, while urging other area councils to follow suit.
Earlier in his remarks, the Executive Chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council, Hon. Abdullahi Adamu Candido, said the quest towards the development of the area council has assumed a holistic approach that spanned across human and infrastructural development, assuring that the council remain undaunted to service delivery.
He called on all and sundry to join hands with the council in the building process, the council boss also called on opposition to desist from “pull him down syndrome” so that the leadership of the council could deliver the much desired dividends of democracy to the people.
Other projects to be completed according to him include the Karshi Community Plaza, the Karshi Community Radio, amongst others.
