The Chairman of the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), Mr. Micah Y. Jiba, has said that his administration has established about 10 schools and distributed school uniforms to about 4600 pupils free of charge.
The chairman, who disclosed this last Saturday in Abuja, said his administration in less than three years also paid scholarships to over 800 students at a cost of N27 million.
Micah said about 1625 school desks for pupils were provided for some schools across the 12 wards, adding that 100,000 free exercise books were distributed to pupils in the area.
"Within this period, we were also able to connect 42 communities with comprehensive rural electrification, aside the periodic supply of transformers to needy communities," he said.
The chairman also hinted that his administration has provided 30 comprehensive water schemes and about 10 rural road networks.
"In the area of environmental sanitation, we purchased two trucks, a D7 Bulldozer, a pick-up van and engaged sanitation marshals to dispose refuse in satellite towns," he said.
He admitted that the problem of waste collection and disposal are exceedingly re-occurring and tend to rubbish the council's effort.
The chairman appealed to residents to adhere strictly to safe environmental practices and cooperate with environmental officers.
