AMAC, The Abuja Inquirer partner on sustainable city
The Abuja Municipal Area Council, AMAC, and The Abuja Inquirer have pledged to work together for a sustainable city.
The pledge was made when the editorial team of the newspaper paid a courtesy visit on the AMAC chairman, Hon. Abdullahi Candido.
Specifically, the council said the newspaper has come of age in public enlightenment on issues bordering the six area councils of the Federal Capital Territory.
Candido stressed that the council is ready to partner the media for the development of the grassroots.
"The Abuja Inquirer newspaper has come a long way. And going by your name and what you stand for, it takes a common sense for any serious minded person or organisation to do business with your paper. We in AMAC strongly believe that your paper has maintained a good track record and we are ready to do business with you.
"We will support you in the area of advocacy so that our developmental strides can reach the grassroots because the media whether we like or not is the voice of the people. Therefore, our partnership with you will be a symbiotic relationship," Candido stated.
Earlier, the leader of the delegation and editor of The Abuja Inquirer, Mr. Emmanuel Ogbeche, said the visit was to commend the council chairman on the transparent manner in which the council's allocations are being judiciously utilized and to point out areas where the council needs to improve on.
Ogbeche, used the occasion to draw the attention of the council's chairman to some wards within the council where residents in those wards have not felt the developmental impact of the council, just as he called on the chairman to do more for fairness and justice.
