AMAC can sur­vive with­out monthly al­lo­ca­tion – Coun­cil boss

Daily Trust - - STRANGE STORIES - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The Chair­man of the Abuja Mu­nic­i­pal Area Coun­cil (AMAC), Al­haji Ab­dul­lahi Adamu Can­dido, has said that the coun­cil can sur­vive with­out de­pend­ing on its monthly al­lo­ca­tion from the fed­er­a­tion ac­count.

Speak­ing, week­end, he said that he in­her­ited a nearly ‘col­lapsed’ area coun­cil.

Can­dido said that the coun­cil was blessed with un­tapped sources of rev­enue from where mil­lions of naira can be re­alised to pay staff salaries and carry out projects for the masses.

He said that his ad­min­is­tra­tion was seek­ing ways to ex­plore the rev­enue sources and start pro­vid­ing so­cial ameni­ties to the ru­ral dwellers.

“De­spite the fact that any­time we go for JAAC meet­ing we ei­ther come back empty-handed, which means we have no Kobo from the fed­er­a­tion ac­count, AMAC will never suf­fer in terms of money to tackle some of its chal­lenges since we have av­enues through which rev­enue can be re­alised,” he said.
