Eid-el Kabir

By Salisu Sani-Idris

Abuja, Aug. 11, 2019 Mr Chinyeaka Ohaa, Permanent Secretary, FCT, on Sunday advised residents of Abuja to continue to live in peace so as to enhance the pace of development in the territory.

Ohaa gave the advice when he hosted the residents for Sallah celebration at Life Camp, Abuja.

“We thank God for giving us peace in the FCT and I congratulate all of us for maintaining that peace.

“Let us all continue to work together and support our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, to continue to lead us in the right direction.

“The essence of this celebration (Sallah), is love; if we love one another, we will not have to fight or kill one another.

“We are happy that we have all come together in the FCT to celebrate.

“We believe that the minister that will be deployed to the FCT will continue on the good work of the former FCT Administration, and we need to support the person,” he said.

He warned the residents against any act that could cause flood in the territory during the rainy season.

“Be careful because the report we are having about the flooding is not good, so you should avoid blocking of drainage,” Ohaa advised.

Earlier, Sen. Philip Aduda, who represents the FCT, had thanked the Permanent Secretary for the invitation to celebrate Sallah and commended him for the competent way he had managed the FCT so far.

Aduda also commended him for bringing people together to celebrate, and promised that he and his colleagues at the National Assembly would continue to support the FCTA through legislation.

“We won’t be a clog in the wheel of progress. Politics is over now, we promise to remain together and work for the good of the FCT irrespective of the political party that brought us together.

“Politics is now gone and it is now time to work for the progress of Nigeria.

“This country is bigger than any of us. FCT is bigger than any of us. It is God that gives the power,” he said.

The celebration was attended by many religious and youth leaders, top management of the FCTA, Area Council Chairmen as well as many traditional rulers.
