Chairman of Abuja Municipal Area council (AMAC), Hon. Abdullahi Adamu Candido, has inaugurated a committee to harmonize the council’s bye laws with the Nigerian Constitution.
Inaugurating the committee in his office yesterday, Candido urged members to identify grey areas that create conflict between the council and other agencies of government.
He also charged the committee to look into contractual agreement entered into by the council with other companies from 2010 to date and to clearly define anything that does not concern the people of AMAC.
“You are to resolve grey areas that bring the council into conflict with other government agencies. The committee is to avoid unnecessary litigation. We want to have peace with everybody. Grey areas must be resolved. Issues must be resolved to ensure that there is peace everywhere,” he said.
He stated further that the committee must ensure that areas that breed fraudulent activities within the council are put to a halt.
“The committee is to ensure that fraudulent activities are stopped to ensure that there is no fraud around the council,” he said.
Responding on behalf of members, the chairman of the committee, who is also the speaker of the legislative arm of the council, Mr. Michael Daniel thanked the AMAC chairman for the confidence reposed in them and assured of their collective readiness to live up to expectation.
The seven-man committee, which comprises of lawyers and experienced administrators, has Barr Ayodele Shona, as the secretary and has two months to summit its report for onward legislation.
