Ahead of the official inauguration of all the elected area council’s officials, the FCT Minister, Malam Muahammad Musa Bello has said that he is ready to work with anyone popularly elected by the people to represent them across the six area councils in the just concluded area council elections.
The Minister gave the assurance when the officials of the FCT Press Corps paid him a courtesy call on Monday.
His words: “The FCT Administration under my leadership would work very closely with all the elected Councils’ officials irrespective of
Political parties they belong to, in order to bring rapid development to the Area Councils of the Territory.”
Bello reiterated that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, which is built on change mantra, is committed to entrenching good governance at the grassroots level.
“We will interface with all the elected officials at the local level to bring development to the grassroots where majority of the people reside,” he stressed.
The Minister, however, expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the election adjudged to be free and fair.
