Commission applauds Bello over infrastructural development
The Federal Capital Territory minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, has been lauded for the significant improvement in the outlook of the FCT through massive investments in infrastructure.
The chairman and chief executive, National Salaries, Income and Wages Commission, Mr. Richard Egbule, gave this commendation when he led the board of commissioners and management of the commission to pay a courtesy call on the minister.
According to the wages commission boss, this has significantly improved FCT’s traffic situation and enriched the living standards of the residents.
Egbule noted that these achievements were particularly substantial, coming at a time of lean financial resources, while noting that the level of accomplishment was not altogether surprising given what he knew of Bello at the time he was the chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON.
The chairman underscored the massive rehabilitation of road infrastructure going on in Karu, while saying, “It goes to tell of the commitment of the FCT Administration towards leaving no area of the FCT behind in the project of giving Abuja befitting infrastructure and amenities”.
Egbule used the occasion to appeal to the minister for a plot of land on which it plans to develop a befitting headquarters for the commission, while lamenting that the commission which came into existence 25 years ago, does not have a property to call its own.
Responding, the FCT minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, assured them that FCTA was willing to help the commission in its quest for a befitting accommodation.
The minister lamented that while some establishments are eager to obtain plots for the development of their secretariats, some who had benefitted from such plot allocations are either dragging their feet to develop their plots or have proved incapable of doing so.
He disclosed that the FCT Administration intends to revoke such plots for re-allocation to establishments that are ready to develop their plots.
