Chairman of Kwali Area Council, Joseph Shazin, at the weekend said plans have been concluded to sink boreholes in Farakuti II and Kwaita-Sabo as well as refurbish the grounded ones in other communities in the area.
Shazin, who stated this in a chat with our reporters, said water problems facing some of the communities were because the interim administration that handed over to him did not do much in water provision.
He said since his administration assumed office, it has rehabilitated and maintained boreholes at Kigbe, Yebu Market Square, Farakuti I and Farabugu communities.
On rural electrification, the council boss said he is working assiduously to ensure he recalls the contractor handling the abandoned Yebu Ward electrification project to complete it for the benefit of communities in that ward.
Shazin disclosed that the council has embarked on the construction and grading of some rural feeder roads to ensure easy mobility of residents living in those communities.
"Contracts have been awarded for the grading of Tukuruwa- Kwali major feeder road; sand filling of Daka-Bolo major feeder road and construction of coverts at Dafa community to ensure farmers in these communities have easy access to their farms," he said.
He however stated that the coming of the raining season would slow down some of the projects, adding that road constructions is usually difficult during raining season.
Shazin, who expressed displeasure over the abandoned Yebu- Kwaita road project, said he has been meeting with officials of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) to ensure that the contractor handling the work is mobilised back to the site.
He also disclosed that the matter has equally been raised and deliberated at the Joint Account Committee (JAC) and that pressures are being mounted to ensure the project is completed.
In the areas of health and education, the council boss said, most of the communities in the council have been provided with well equipped primary health care centres and that the council is planning to build some classroom blocks at Yebu II Primary School.
