IN a renewed effort to keep Abuja clean, the federal capital clean, the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCDA) has charged Special Task Force on city cleaning to rededicate itself to the onerous task of making Abuja cleaner.

The FCTA Permanent Secretary, John Chukwu gave this charge in an emergency meeting with the members of the task force led by its Chairman who is also the FCT Police Commissioner, Inalegwu at the Minister’s Conference Room in Area 11, Garki I District, Abuja, last week.

Chukwu however, urged the members to exercise caution in dealing with environmental defaulters in the city by following due process and avoid any situation that will lead to violence, stressing that the Task Force must operate according to the rules of their engagement.

“The Abuja city, more than ever requires effective services and orderliness so that people can go about their lawful businesses in a very safe environment,” he stressed.

Furthermore, the Permanent Secretary called for “self-assessment on how efficient we are delivering these services”; emphasizing, “the system must work in line with the vision of the Abuja founding fathers”.

He warned, “all eyes are on us, so we must continue to do more than we were doing before”. The Permanent Secretary insisted that commercial motorcyclists (Okada), street hawkers and beggars must be put-off the streets of the Federal Capital City, while Keke NAPEP must be restricted to designated areas.

In his response, the FCT Police Commissioner/Chairman of the Task Team, Wilson Inalegwu assured the Permanent Secretary of full support in the sustenance of the performance of the Task Team and in the management of the city.
