The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) through its Area Council Services Secretariat (ACSS) has upped measures towards forestalling further breach of peace in the ancient town of Bwari in the nation’s capital.

Making the disclosure, ACSS Mandate Secretary, Adamu Bappah, revealed that the administration had achieved considerable success in restoring peace and order in the area, and cannot allow any of the processes to be truncated by any group.
Bappah, who spoke during a chat with select journalists in his office, last week, said the secretariat was also taking the sensitization campaigns to other area councils apart from Bwari, that has become a flash point for crisis in the Territory.
Stressing that as 2019 general elections approach, Bappah opined that there was need for sensitization campaigns to create awareness among residents of the rural communities on the need to live peacefully with each other and avoid any action capable of causing trouble.
He explained that the campaign became necessary, considering the heavy concentration of rural people in the Area Councils where most politicians go to solicit for votes during elections.
“We are carrying out the sensitization campaign to let our people understand that they have to live in peace and harmony with one another.
“I don’t know the actual cause of the resurgence of the crisis in Bwari, the police is still investigating and we will allow the police to complete their investigation.
“The responsibility of the secretariat is to always call on the people to ensure that they live,” the ACSS boss reiterated.
