The Chairman of Bwari Area Council, Mr Musa Dikko, on Thursday said the area council would embark on lifetime projects that would impact positively on the lives of the people.
Dikko made the pledge while signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with representatives of the Urban Shelter Infrastructure Limited in Abuja.
The partnership agreement was to execute, with immediate effect, the Dei-Dei Market Development Project, based on Public Private Partnership (PPP).
According to Dikko, his administration would stop at nothing to achieve the goal of meeting the needs of the people in the council.
” This council takes on projects worth executing and that would bring about positive change to the people.
”This is in line with what the Federal Government wants and our only target is to continue to deliver to the people, set goals.
”I believe that the project would change the lives of the people of Bwari area council and also help decongest the main city,” he said.
The chairman assured the developers of non-interference from the communities and of the council’s maximum co-operation.
He, however, said that the council would “give a close marking” on the progress of the project to ensure the set goal is achieved at the appropriate time.
Also speaking, Mr Bala Ibrahim, a director with the company, said that the company would move to the site without delay to commence work as it has been given “24 months for construction and 10 years management period.”
Ibrahim, while appreciating the chairman, gave the assurance that his company would ensure that its competence and past achievements would be showcased at the end of the project.
The Dei-Dei market and trailer park project was initially awarded in 2008 to an earlier developer, who made progress on the trailer park development but not on the market.
The council, however, deemed it necessary to revoke the partnership from the earlier developer, following appropriate processes, in order to achieve the intended goal.
