CHIEFDOM TOUR CONTINUES, AS THE ACSS MANDATE SECRETARY HON. COMMISSIONER BITRUS LAWRENCE GARKI VISITS THE AGUMA OF GOMANI AND OTHERS
In continuation of the chiefdom tour, it was with great anticipation as the team and my self, ACSS Mandate Secretary Hon. Bitrus Lawrence Garki, took a tour round the scheduled chiefdoms of Gomani, Pai, Gwagwalada, Kuje, Zuba and Jiwa. Following the exchange of pleasantries and prayers were intricate discussions and ventilation of unrestrained in-depth concerns.
Once again, I emphasized the three meeting agenda which are mainly for familiarization, needs assessment and to convey the felicitations of H.E, President Bola Tinubu GCFR, Honorable Minister, Barrister Nyesom Wike and Hon. FCT State Minister, Dr. Mariya Mahmoud. There is no gain saying that we can only achieve the best of this administration through synergy and partnership between the Chiefdoms and the Secretariat, to galvanize intelligence on time and real time as well as for the secretariat to offer trainings, services and other monumental support to the people of Gomani, Pai, Gwagwalada, Kuje, Zuba and Jiwa Chiefdom.
This administration as I mentioned is designed to meet the needs of the people in a unique way. Fortunately, the highlighted problems of these chiefdoms are in tandem with the mandates of H.E, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, Honorable Minister, Barrister Nyesom Wike, FCT State Minister, Dr Mariya Mahmoud as well as the manifesto of the Mandate Secretary, ACSS which is under my purview.
Particularly, what stood out for me is the visit to Aguma of Gomina Chiefdom. Despite encountering the most inaccessible roads and large, deep ditches along the way. It is with great joy I passed the message of hope to the Gomina Chiefdom, following the Honorable Minister, Barrister. Nyesom Wike’s approval of construction of 5km roads across FCT area council to combat road inaccessibility concern. More importantly, I with all sense of responsibility, will ensure the government initiatives are being deployed to curb these menaces through the ACSS.
The necessity to establish accessible support fund to cater to the needs of the FCT chiefdoms, to tackle immediate emanating challenges is of high need. Sequel to that, the ACSS seeks to facilitate the FCT Intervention fund(FIF)in partnership with organisations like SMEDAN for small and medium size loan accessibility to the grassroots women, creating a free, fair, accessible and effective deployment of this laudable initiative.
Again, the FCT youth, one of the most marginalized groups will finally be revived of its vitality through the FCT youth network. A network comprising of 858 communities , 62 wards coordinators 6 area council representatives and the FCT youth leader. Their youthful resources, will be leveraged on to collect and disseminate information for mandate effectiveness and development.
In the spirit of inclusive participation in government, through the instituted FCT civil service commission, created by the new administration, citizenry will now be able to actively participate in any capacity as they do wish.
It is my believe that as these challenges are addressed, through strategic emanating laudable initiatives, it will open up to employment, more trade explorations, improved livelihood which will drastically reduce insecurity and other problems faced with the Gomani, Pai, Gwagwalada, Kuje, Zuba and Jiwa Chiefdoms.
