The Chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), Hon. Christopher Zakka Maikalangu, has said that the Federal Capital Territory was undergoing positive transformation under the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike. 

Speaking Tuesday in Abuja, during the flag off ceremony for resurfacing of roads in Maitama, Maikalangu thanked President Bola Tinubu for sending Wike to the FCT and pledged continued support of AMAC residents to the Renewed Hope Agenda in a bid to reposition the Territory. 

He said: “Your Excellency, only your body language speaks volume of progressive thinking in FCT today. Thus in just few months of your watch as the FCT Minister, the Capital is witnessing transformation in every area. 

“This is very clear for everybody to see and we must commend and support you in your transformation agenda in FCT which is the brain child of the Renewed Hope mantra of Mr. President.”

He hailed Wike as one of the most performing Ministers in the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu,  thanking the Minister for his deep and earnest attention in making AMAC benefit much in the infrastructural development under his watch. 

Maikalangu noted that Maitama was beautiful, but lacked sufficient water supply, forcing those living there to depend on drilling of boreholes, which could lead to proliferation of boreholes in the area. 

“Also, like Oliver Twist, it is not only Maitama. Some other districts in AMAC are suffering the same infrastructural decay and I use this medium to bring it to your notice, sir,” he said.

The FCT Minister, Barr. Nyesom Wike, appealed to residents of Maitama and other affected areas to bear with the government over the inconveniences the resurfacing work would cause, adding development must come with necessity for sacrifice. 

Wike noted that those who were fighting him for his resolve to generate tax were happy with projects “which need funds from taxes for execution.”

He warned the contractors to deliver quality work and on time, vowing he would not hesitate to revoke where contractors fail to adhere to contractual agreements. 

This third phase of the project would resurface not less than 189 roads in Maitama and other portions of Garki and Wuse districts.
