The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesome Wike has charged FCDA directors in the Administration to brace up to deliver line with the renewed hope agenda of president Bola Tinubu.
Wike particularly urged directors in charge of traffic light, transportation, and Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) to urgently engage in results oriented actions.
Wike gave the matching order today when he received handover notes from the FCTA Permanent Secretary, Olusade Adesola.
The minister said that closing down of illegal motor parks, improved sanitation and functioning traffic light are issues to be addressed in the short-term plan.
“Those in charge of traffic light, transportation, and sanitation must sit up to do their work well. I will make the necessary provision for the work to be done.”
“We will not allowed illegal motor parks all over the city, this is Federal Capital Territory, so things must be done well.”
Meanwhile, the Minister advised directors who felt they did not possess the capacity to deliver on their current tasks to seek redeployment to areas of their strength, adding that he would not take any excuses for failure.
The Minister of State for FCT, Dr. Mariya Mahmoud noted that with the support of the workers, what Wike has done in Rivers would be replicated in the FCT.
“I am of the firm belief that, together, and with your support, we will replicate what the Minister (Wike) has done in Rivers in the nation’s capital, especially at the Area Councils and Satellite Towns.”
“This is so that the lives of our people in the rural areas will be positively touched.”
We will run with the vision of President Tinubu, which we will be unveiling as we hit the ground running, Mahmoud said.
The permanent secretary FCTA, Olusade Adesola assured the ministers of the unalloyed support of the entire staff of the FCT Administration in ensuring the actualization of the mandate of the President Tinubu.
