Original Inhabitants of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, under the umbrella body of the Original Inhabitants Development Association, OIDA, has described the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mallam Muhammad Musa Bello as a hypocrite who has left his core duty to chase shadows and cheap publicity.
A frontliner in the movement for better living condition of the Gbagyis who are the original inhabitants of Abuja, Comrade Yusuf Yunusa, who was reacting to the recent comment by the minister that the Kuje Area Council Chairman, Shabban Tete, has expended huge sums of money maintaining a dirty environment the area expressed disappointment at the level in which the FCT minister came out in public to blast the FCT elected council Chairman, thus advising the minister to behave maturely in handling public issues or face the wrath of the FCT indigenes.
“We wonder while the minister who has been asleeped since his assumption of office has just wakened up on the bed side of the FCT Chairmen. This is obviously a sign of incompetence in managing the affairs of the FCT. How can a father go to the media to tell the world that his children are not competent? This is obviously an act of witch hunt and hypocrisy in the highest order and we the residents of the FCT will not accept it.”
He accused the Minister of failing to perform his duty as father of all residents since his assumption of office as the FCT Minister, advising him to take a cue from his predecessor and appoint special advisers who will aid him in managing the affairs of the FCT and stop acting as if he is still a director.
The Gbagyi leader challenged the minister to spill out his blueprint and policies for FCT residents and stop looking for a cheap publicity.
“This is the first time in the history of FCT that we are having a sleeping minister who has no idea of the constitutional powers bestowed on him by the President. But I tell you that very soon we may stage a peaceful protest to request for a change of minister in the FCT if nothing is happening in the territory.
“Imagine that our parents are being owed salaries for a complete three months and the minister could not explain to us why it is so.
