Residents of the Federal Capital Territory have been advised to desist from vandalizing public facilities put in place for their common good.
Chairman, Abuja Municipal Area Council, Christopher Zakka Maikalangu made the appeal in Gwagwa, a suburb of Abuja.
He particularly tasked the Council residents to instead “Jealously guard all government installations across the FCT against vandalism”.
His words: “Remember that every Government installations in your communities are yours and you have the right to protect them”.
The AMAC boss further stressed that vandalizing public utilities does not only deny the residents their usage, but it also makes the government to spend again on refurbishing or replacing them, which he said is counterproductive.
The Chairman regretted that such unfortunately actions take funds away from other projects and services that would have been provided in other areas.
Maikalangu, therefore, pledged to ensure the provision of such infrastructures as rural electrification, rural water supply, rural feder roads and other interconnected rural services, among others.
Meanwhile, the Chairman has condoled with the immediate family of the late AMAC Treasurer, Yahuza Sadiq Musa, who died on Wednesday, 30th November 2022 and has since been buried according to Islamic rites.
He prayed for the repose of his soul for Allah to reward him with Al-Jannah
