The residents of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have commended Senator Philip Tanimu Aduda for his commitment to providing basic infrastructure to the people his constituency especially those living in the rural areas.
They made the commendation during the inspection of constituency projects attracted by senator Aduda in the six area councils of the FCT led by his Special Assistant on Special Duties Hon. Samuel Shekwolo recently.
Shekwolo said the essence of the inspection is to ascertain the projects that are due for commissioning and the quality of those that are ongoing.
“For the ongoing ones, the contractors are doing a very good job, those that have been completed; we are satisfied with the job done so far, especially the borehole projects, the town hall at karu and several others.
“As you all know, the duty of a senator is to make laws for the country. But senator Aduda has taken it upon himself to provide infrastructure to his people in the FCT. This not the first time we are doing this, every year we go round in conjunction with the MDA’s who are in charge of these projects. We have the constituency project; sometimes we have projects that are executed directly by the senator and zonal interventions projects.
“There is hardly any ward or community in the FCT that do not have one Senator Aduda projects. These projects include motorized/ Solar boreholes, blocks of class rooms, several kilometres roads, solar panels, town halls, and blocks of class rooms spread across the area councils.”
Speaking about the Karu town hall, the Personal Assistant on project to senator Aduda, Iroha C. Iroha said the hall is one of legacy projects of the senator.
“This town hall is one of the visible dividends of democracy in the entire Federal Capital Territory. As you can see, it is a state of the art fully furnished town hall meeting. It is fitted with Air conditioners, chairs, borehole and a standby power generating set,” he said.
Also, the chairman of Igbo community in Karu, Chief Godabeg Egbe commended the senator for the quality of the project.
He said “we are happy the town hall is ready for commissioning. They say charity begins at home. Senator Aduda demonstrated this by bringing this project to karu. It will help the community because it will be used for community meetings, wedding receptions and so on”.
Shekwolo also urged communities that benefited from the project to maintain them so as to attract more.
“The advised I will give to the people is that they should maintain these projects so as to encourage the senator to do more. One of our problems in this part of the world is lack of maintenance culture,”No tags for this post.
