The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has concluded plans to relocate the people of Garki village to Apo within the next two months.
“Resettlement has not received the level of funding that is necessary. We are hoping that by the end of the year we will finish the resettlement relocation of Garki village and move it to Apo,” said Minister of State for FCT, Ms. Olajumoke Akinjide in Abuja yesterday, at the inauguration of projects and presentation of vehicles to the Nigerian Police, AMAC division.
“You know I set up a committee and we have White Paper and an Implementation Committee is now being finalised. I believe in the next two months we will finalise and the movements will start.
“Then, we will follow with part of Utako, Jabi and again, we intend to finish the relocation of the site in Bwari Area Council this year, at least, a substantial part of it but we cannot leave our people without water, electricity while they were waiting to be moved. We cannot let them live in a humane condition, insanitary condition that will leave them with a risk of cholera or other diseases,” she added.
Speaking further, the minister commended the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) administration for completion of various projects, which she noted, “fulfills the critical policy thrust of governance set out under the transformation agenda.
“If you want development to reach the grassroots-the minister of FCT and myself can know about it sitting in our office-but the chairman and the supervisory councilors; are the ones working in the grassroots, they know what the need is and they are providing that need. I believe this is a demonstration of democracy.”
The projects inaugurated included the clinic, which as at the time of inauguration, was lacking medical equipment with a total cost of N26 million with the doctors chalet which the chairman promised to equip next week.
Others are the 1.2 km Apo mechanic village extension road at the cost of N117 million, provision of borehole at Area 1, section 1, at the cost of N2.1 million, distribution of 10 refurbished operational vehicles to the AMAC police command with a promise to deliver 14 more at a cost of N1.2 million, and the construction of staff quarters at Tundunwada at the cost of N10 million.
