Mr Abdullahi Candido, Chairman, Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) has called for Public Private Partnership (PPP) to increase infrastructural development in all local government areas across the country.
Candido made the call at the inauguration of the provision of infrastructure at Sabon-Lugbe community on Tuesday, in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that an access road along Voice of Nigeria/Trademore Estate Lugbe, was also inaugurated by the chairman.
“Therefore, providing access to basic infrastructures cannot be seen as mere luxury but necessary facilities to make life easy for the people.
“It would also in turn motivate residents in carrying out their own civic responsibilities in the governance system.
Mr Nicholas Ukachukwu, the Chairman, Riok Nigeria Ltd., who is also the development partner, said his organisation decided to partner with the area council to help residents enjoy development.
He also called on the beneficiaries to reciprocate government’s efforts by adopting maintenance culture of the facilities. (NAN)
