A group of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) indigenes, Greater Gbagyi Development Initiatives (GG-DIN), has called on residents of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) to support the second term bid of Hon. Abdulahi Adamu Candido, as AMAC chairman, during the 2019 council election.
Coordinator of the group, Prince Gimba Gbaiza, who made the call while briefing journalists, stated that there is no vacancy in AMAC in 2019, adding that the group is satisfied with the present leadership in the council.
Gbaiza explained that the GG-DIN is a platform for the development of the indigenous persons in the FCT, stating that Candido should be allowed finish his two term as AMAC chairman, before anybody can think of contesting the seat.
“We are satisfied with his government. We want to applaud the chairman of AMAC, Hon. Abdullahi Candido, for his achievement so far in improving the living standard of the people of AMAC, in terms of human development, infrastructure and other things.
“In recent times he has proven that chairman in AMAC can deliver the dividends of democracy without sentiments and it is obvious that his achievements speak volume. Examples are the road constructions across the 12 wards of the council and other basic infrastructures that are people oriented.”
He noted that most of the agencies established by the present AMAC administration, such as the AMAC Marshal, AMAC Micro Finance Bank, AMAC Community Radio and skills acquisition centres have gone a long way to creating jobs for people of AMAC, and has reduced the level of poverty in the council.
“Even the communities in the hinterlands have felt the presence of this government, which we can boldly say has not been like that in the past. Candido is one of the foremost agitators of the emancipation of Abuja indigenous people.”
