APGA chieftain demands probe of council chairmen

APGA chieftain demands probe of council chairmen

A chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in FCT, James Chukwu has demanded for a probe of the six area council chairmen by the FCT minister, Moham­med Bello.
 
He said infrastruc­ture development across communities was at zero level, which according to him, the monthly alloca­tions that go to councils should be properly ac­counted for.
 
Chukwu, who is also the Vice Chairman of APGA in Abuja South federal constituency said FCT as the nation’s capi­tal should be provided with all the necessary fa­cilities.
 
He regretted that the situation in communities across the area councils was not encouraging.
 
“FCT is where the seat of power is, so every­thing should be in place, especially across the councils,” Chukwu em­phasised.
 
He told The AU­THORITY in Abuja that setting up a committee that would checkmate the activities of chairmen on how they use their allocations would help address the underdevel­opment.
 
The APGA chieftain blamed the poor infra­structure in FCT on mis­appropriation of avail­able resources meant for development.
 
“The resources meant for execution of projects in the FCT communi­ties should be channelled into projects that would improve the living stan­dard of residents, than diverting the monies into privates.”
 
According to him, the minister should ensure that the change agenda of the present adminis­tration work in the Ter­ritory.
