2018: FCTA To Focus On Satellite Town Development



Leadership Nigeria News Today

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has disclosed that it would focus more on infrastructural development in Abuja area councils and satellite towns in 2018.

In an interview with LEADERSHIP, the secretary, Area Councils Services Secretariat (ACSS), Alhaji Adamu  Abubakar Bappah, disclosed that the administration is refocusing its development programmes towards the satellites towns, so as to equate the infrastructure in the areas with that of the city centre.

Bappah stated that development at the Abuja satellite towns and the area councils was meant to reduce the high movement of people from the areas to the city centres.

He commended the FCT minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, for his contribution towards the development of the area councils and called on residents to reciprocate the gesture.

The secretary also disclosed that the secretariat is taking an inventory of all those that lost properties during the communal crisis in Bwari, with a view at assisting them financially.

Bappah added that every effort is being made, by the administration, to ensure that such crisis does not reoccur in any part of the territory, just as he called on traditional rulers to always maintain peace and unity within their domains.

He reiterated that the administration has been able to settle Communal clashes between FCT famers and Fulani herds men and also chieftaincy tussles in some quarters, while the sensitization of communities on flood disasters and management strategies, in all the six area councils, are ongoing.
