Aduda donates speed boat to Abaji riverine communities
People living close to River Gurara in Abaji Area Council were full of praises for the representative of the FCT in the upper chamber of National Assembly Senator Philip Aduda after he donated a new speed boat to them.
City News learned that the boat costs N1.8 million and it will serve the people of more than six communities.
Among the benefiting communities are Mamagi, Alu, Maogi, Egulo, Chepu and Lambata.
Speaking at the occasion in Mamagi, Senator Aduda said having served as councilor and vice chairman he was conversant with yearnings and the aspirations of the people at the grassroots.
He said since the people resolved to elect him as their representative, he was duty bound to provide a purposeful leadership to them and attend to the issues affecting their welfare.
“As a human being, I am only doing my best to my people, there is no way their needs can all be satisfied but I will continue to reach out to them based on the resources at my disposal,” the senator said.
Aduda said he would soon commence a tour of all the 62 political wards in the territory to showcase what he has been doing for the people he is representing.
Earlier, the Chairman of Abaji Area Council, Alhaji Yahaya Garba Gawu, thanked the senator for his support for the people of the area.
“Look at the speed boat he donated, it will ease the transportation problem of many villagers living across the River Gurara. He provided Abaji towns with transformers and motorised boreholes. He has been trying his best.”
While commissioning a borehole at old market area of Abaji central ward, the senator was presented with a ram in appreciation of his gesture to the community.
The senator also inspected two transformers provided at Abaji town and commissioned motorised boreholes he donated to the community.
