Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

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.
