FCT communities hail Aduda over constituency projects
Speaking to newsmen on a tour of constituency projects in the six Area Councils, members of the communities described Aduda as a good leader who has brought governance to the grassroots.
A member of Orukpisaka community in Abaji Area Council, where one of the several motorised borehole projects is sited, Mr. Musa Ali, described the senator as the only government they know, adding that the water project has brought surccur to their families as they do not need to trek long distances in search of water again.
One of the projects, the construction of 3.5 kilometer stretch of the Shadadi-Lanto road in Kuje Area Council, completed in late 2019, was of particular metion as many residents of the area volunteered information on the condition of the road before Aduda's intervention.
A butcher, who frequently plies the road, as it leads to a local abbattoir, Mr Dauda Aliyu, said the road was virtually impassable during the rainy season, adding that owners of landed property within the axis were relocating and business was at its ebb.
Aliyu however noted that upon completion and light dressing of the road, as it is yet to be asphalted, people who relocated from the area returned and businesses are also thriving in the area.
"Before now, if you are in this area you would want to go home before it rains. Bikes could not pass. We had problems with our businesses. But now, we have rest of mind," he said.
Conducting journalists along the road project, the Special Assistant to Senator Aduda on Special Duties, Mr Samuel Shekwolo, assured residents that the road will be tarred soon.
Samuel said the original plan was to construct drainage on both sides of the road but it became necessary for the office of the senator to add light dressing on it to contain erosion.
