The FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, has again warned directors of the FCT Administration to desist from sabotaging efforts geared towards the provision of public infrastructure through unnecessary bureaucratic processes. 

The minister, who handed down the warning on Tuesday during the flag-off of the 5-kilometre Naharati – River Ukya-Unguwan Hausawa Road in Abaji Area Council of the territory, frowned at situations where directors hoard files meant for payment of contractors. 

Our correspondent reports that Tuesday’s exercise is the fifth flag-off of rural road construction in the area councils since Wike assumed office.

He warned that his administration would not tolerate any act of sabotage capable of hindering the progress of on-going contracts from the administration’s bureaucracy, noting that all monies meant for payment of contractors is ready. 

He said; “I know that you had suffered quiet a lot in the past and you want things to change immediately. I want to appeal to you to be patient. I will never associate myself with anything that will not work. As I tell you that things will turn around positively, be assured that they will turn around positively. The decisions taken by Mr President may not materialize immediately but just be calm. You will reap it.

“We had a meeting on Monday with the most senior directors and I was telling them that woe unto that director who will keep a file, that I have approved, for weeks. Woe unto you because you are a saboteur. Once I approve, do the needful. You can take a week to do due diligence. You don’t need to take 20 days. The contractors are humans. When the money does not get to them on time, they incur more costs and then they begin to seek variation even though they know that variation is not in my dictionary. So, I need the support of the bureaucracy so that we can deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.” 

Earlier, the chairman of the council, Abdullahi Abubakar, said the road would facilitate the movement of goods and services and support agricultural development.
