Demolition: I’m impressed with Taskforce activities – FCT minister

FCT Minister Muhammad Musa Bello

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Mallam Muhammad Musa Bello, has expressed satisfaction with the ongoing reinvigorated enforcement activities by the FCT Taskforce on City Sanitation, aimed at ensuring the restoration and maintenance of sanity in Abuja, the nation’s capital city.

Bello, who made this assertion during an interface with heads of enforcement related departments in FCTA, affiliate operational commander, and field commanders from various security agencies involved in enforcement activities in the FCT, said without enforcement it’s impossible to attain sanity in the city.

He said, “Honestly, I appreciate you all for what you are doing. All the demolitions; all the arrests that you have done, no big man could call me to stop you, because they know I don’t do so (I won’t), that’s why they don’t talk about it. So, just go and do your work.

“What I’m telling you is exactly the feeling of  the Commander in chief also, because we have to enforce.

“Without enforcement, is not possible, the difference between us and animals is enforcement simply, and we in the Administration have to try our best to help you.”

Similarly, FCT Permanent Secretary, Mr. Olusade Adesola, said the authorities are really feeling the impact of the taskforce, as their work was palpable and appealing to the stakeholders.

This, he however noted, couldn’t have been possible without the political will and support of the Hon. FCT Minister, who always wants the right things done. 

His words: “I have always been seeing the face of Ikharo Attah as the face of all of you, so it is good we are seeing you all today. We are really feeling you, because we are seeing the work that you are doing.”
