Tra­di­tional ruler scores Kwali chair­man low

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The chief of Wako in Kwali Area Coun­cil, Al­haji Ibrahim D. Us­man, has said the present APC-led ad­min­is­tra­tion of Mr. Joseph K. Shazin has failed to im­pact on the lives of his sub­jects.

Us­man, who stated this when he re­ceived the chair­man of PDP in the area, Al­haji Mo­hammed Aruwa, in his palace yes­ter­day, said there was no amenity in the com­mu­nity.

He said since the past ad­min­is­tra­tions of Sa­muel Gwamna, and Mo­hammed Gimba, no other ad­min­is­tra­tion has ex­e­cuted any project in the com­mu­nity.

The chief said even em­ploy­ment which the present chair­man ought to have given to grad­u­ates in the coun­cil were given to out­siders for po­lit­i­cal rea­sons.

“To be sin­cere, our present coun­cil chair­man has not helped us. After the past chair­men, late Sa­muel Gwamna, Mo­hammed Gimba and Ibrahim Daniel, we don’t have any govern­ment pres­ence again. I’m sorry to say, but there is noth­ing to write home about the present govern­ment as there are com­mu­ni­ties that are lack­ing wa­ter and noth­ing has been done and al­lo­ca­tion is be­ing given as at when due,” he said.

The tra­di­tional ruler, how­ever, com­mended the FCT sen­a­tor, Philip Aduda, for his ef­fort in prov­ing bore­holes and so­lar com­mu­nity and other the area coun­cils.

Ear­lier, the Kwali chap­ter chair­man of the PDP, Al­haji Aruwa, said they were em­bark­ing on in­spec­tion of some projects ex­e­cuted by Sen­a­tor Philip Aduda in the area.

He told the monarch that as they go round for the in­spec­tion, they would also take stock of any bro­ken down bore­holes at var­i­ous vil­lages in or­der to re­pair them.

City News learnt that the team in­spected bore­holes with over­head tanks, pri­mary health cen­tres and elec­tri­fi­ca­tion project at Awawa, Bukpe, Yebu, Le­leyi and Gumbo in the coun­cil. lights at the vil­lages across
