A group, South-South All Progressives Congress Stakeholders Forum and other APC stalwarts today lauded the Abuja Municipal Area Council Chairman, Hon. Musa Abdullahi Candido for the all inclusiveness in his administration in line with equity and fairness; calling on other Area Councils to emulate the stride.
The group while singling out the Executive Chairman as the best in the FCT said his records and achievements thus far underscores his avowed commitment to entrench good governance at the grassroots level.
The National Chairman of the group, Comrade Abdulwahab Ekekhide A. who made this known during a courtesy visit to the council boss, said the aim of the group’s visit is to show appreciation to the Chairman, mobilise, sensitise and educate the rural and urban population on the importance of voting right and supporting government policies; most especially that of the All Progressives Congress at all levels.
“We are very much aware of your pedigree in appointing quality people from the South-South to steer the ship of government with you as Chairman Abuja Municipal Area Council; we therefore applaud your giant strides and wish to see you as partner in progress,” Abdulwahab said while asking for more synergy between the area council and the group. The group however solicited for the support of the Chairman to do more for the people of the South South.
The council boss, in his response, who thanked the group for the visit, said his administration will not stop at harnessing available resources for the benefits of the people in the area council. He identified various empowerment programmes embarked upon by his wife, Mrs. Nseabasi Jumbo among ways the council has designed in reaching out to the less privileged and vulnerable in the society.
Present at the august visit is the Director General, Cross River State Due Process & Price Intelligence Bureau (CRS–DPPIB), Alphonsus Ogar Eba who eulogized the executive chairman on his people oriented policies; most especially finding people from the South- South extraction worthy enough to be part of his government.

Cross River State.
