‘Resolving chieftaincy tussles key to peace’
The Chairman of Kwali Area Council in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr. Ibrahim Daniel, has explained that his administration’s determination to resolve some chieftaincy tussles in some communities has started yielding positive results.
Speaking during an interview with our reporter, Daniel said his administration has played a significant role since he assumed office in resolving most of the lingering chieftaincy crisis under Kwali chiefdom in the area.
He said he decided to operate an open door policy when he assumed leadership of the council, which he said, gave residents the privilege to express their challenges, before he started some of them.
“I always ensure that I work with my team and seek their advice to resolve any differences, which has also helped me to achieve a lot within the past two years we came on board,’’ he said.
He stated that one of the paramount things his administration has also succeeded in was giving residents of the council peace and a sense of belonging.
Daniel said his administration has achieved a lot in terms of provision of social amenities such as health, education, sinking and refurbishing of boreholes, provision of drugs at clinics, construction of roads and box culverts despite the challenges of dwindling revenue to the council.
