*Vows to monitor process
The All Progressive Party APC in the Abuja Municipal Area council AMAC, has thumbed up decisions of the House of Representative committee on FCT on the reversal of earlier disbanded tenement rate by the council.
Recall that the issue of tenement rate collection within the municipal has been a salient issue as the National Assembly earlier before now ordered the Minister of FCT, Mallam Mohammed Bello, to put the process on hold to enable them formalise and legitimise the process before proper kickoff.
The house committee on FCT, had sort all relevant policies including the relevant sections of the Nigerian constitution before taking a resolution.
Briefing the media at the weekend in Abuja, Chairman of AMAC chapter of the party, Alhaji Abbas Baba, said that his leadership, having seen the motive and gallantry exhibited by the honourable members at the House of Representative, that his party chapter would join ranks with AMAC to ensure judicious implementation of the process and also to ensure due process.
According to kudos goes to the Honourable members who ensure that justice prevailed. “We wish to salute the courage of members of the House of Representative who ensure that the rule of law prevailed and for granting the council approval to commence collection of tenement rates in the city and satellite towns in accordance with the constitution”.
The Chairman observed that the process became easier because the Honourable Minister of FCT, works in line with the programmes of President Mohamadu Buhari’s Change Agenda.
Alhaji Abbas Baba, assured that his party leadership would throw it’s weight behind Abdulahi Candido Administration to ensure a Judicious use of every Kobo collected as revenue to the development of the council. End
