APC mem­bers urged to be pa­tient with FCT coun­cil bosses

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The chair­man of the rul­ing All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in the FCT, Al­haji Us­man Ab­dul­ma­lik, has ap­pealed to both mem­bers and sup­port­ers of the party to be pa­tient with the five area coun­cils chair­men, say­ing ev­ery­body will soon feel the im­pact of democ­racy.

Ad­dress­ing the state party ex­ec­u­tives at his Shafa-Abakpa res­i­dence on Fri­day, he also urged them to be pa­tient with Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s ad­min­is­tra­tion, say­ing the hard­ship be­ing ex­pe­ri­enced will be­come his­tory in no dis­tance time.

He said the APC ad­min­is­tra­tion has made se­ri­ous ef­forts to tackle most of the chal­lenges that have been fac­ing the coun­try, es­pe­cially in the area of se­cu­rity and cor­rup­tion, adding that ef­forts are on to re­vamp the coun­try’s econ­omy.

“It is unfortunate what the ad­min­is­tra­tion of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari came and met on ground. It was also the same thing that our new coun­cil chair­men came and in­her­ited. But de­spite the chal­lenges of lack of funds, they have to set­tle back­log of salaries and ar­rears of work­ers owed by the past chair­men, “has said.
