Mallam Muhammad Musa Bello, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has charged members of the reconstituted water board to have sound internal dynamics, be productive, people-oriented and financially self-sustaining.
Bello gave the charge while inaugurating the reconstituted management Board of FCT Water Board and charged them to give priority to ongoing water projects in the territory.
He said that their coming on stream should help in consolidating the foundations of good corporate governance and productivity in the organisation with anticipated multiplier effects in the FCT economy.
“So much confidence has therefore been reposed in you. You must consequently hit the ground running,” he said.
Mallam Bello, who was represented on the occasion by Mr. Chinyeaka Ohaa, the Permanent Secretary, called on the board members to put in their best to sustain the momentum of service delivery as well as enhance the dividends of change, which is the driving spirit of the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration.
Also speaking, the FCTA Permanent Secretary, who was represented by the Chief of Staff to the FCT Minister, Mallam Bashir Maibornu, said the coming on stream of the Management Board was a significant value addition that would assist in setting out broad policy guidelines, key performance indicators and professional advice required for improved performance of the board.
Mr. Chinyeaka charged the Board members to guide and support the management team of the FCT Water Board by setting attainable goals and globally acceptable standards that would ensure the provision of quality water supply to all nooks and crannies of the FCT.
The Management Boards of some FCT Parastatals and Agencies were recently inaugurated by the FCT Minister to stimulate and galvanise activities of the agencies for optimal performance and improved service delivery.
The FCT Water Board could not be inaugurated at the time due to some circumstances beyond the control of the FCT Administration that needed to be cleared to pave way for their formal coming on stream.
In his response, Engr. Kassim Ali, the chairman of the newly inaugurated board, thanked the administration for the confidence reposed in the members by their call to service.
He called for the support and partnership of the Administration and residents towards the achievement of the mandate of the board.
