Chairman of the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), Christopher Zakka Maikalangu, has announced his intention to model his project execution approach after FCT Minister Nyesom Wike.
Maikalangu made this declaration while initiating the rehabilitation of the 1.58km Dnako Township Road on Monday. This event followed similar ceremonies in Mabushi and Gosa communities just a few days earlier.
Demonstrating a commitment to fulfilling the community’s needs and delivering democratic benefits along with effective governance, Maikalangu emphasized that the contract could face revocation if the contractors did not live up to expectations, taking inspiration from the proactive approach of FCT Minister Nyesom Wike.
Speaking on behalf of the people of AMAC, Maikalangu welcomed attendees to the groundbreaking ceremony for the Dnako township road rehabilitation. He emphasized the ceremony’s significance during a period when the FCT Minister aimed to transform the FCT’s appearance.
Convinced that grassroots development is the most suitable approach in his role as Local Government Chairman, Maikalangu expressed happiness about the expected benefits of the Dnako Township Road for the local population. He envisioned it creating a new business hub, contributing to urban resettlement, and reducing pressure on the city center.
Underscoring his legacy in projects like road construction, water schemes, and education spanning different council communities, Maikalangu expressed optimism about the contractor meeting expectations for the road project. He stressed the importance of spontaneous project supervision and the council’s preparedness to cancel the contract if the work veered off specifications, following the example set by Minister Nyesom Wike.
Encouraging stakeholders, traditional leaders, and residents of Dnako Community to back the contractor for effective project finalization, Maikalangu appealed for utmost collaboration to ensure the job is completed promptly, drawing inspiration from the approach adopted by FCT Minister Nyesom Wike.
Arch. Andrew Gaza, Head of Works and Housing, noted that the Dnako Township Road project fulfilled promises made during the campaign period. He highlighted the project’s significance in City Center Development Phase 3, aiming to create a city within a city. The Chairman instructed the project’s completion within a year.
