Wike: I’ve Beamed Searchlight On Satellite Towns Over Cleaning Fraud


The Federal Capital Territory ( FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike, said he has beamed a searchlight on the Satellite Towns Development Department ( STDD) over some fraudulent activities involving cleaning and sanitation contracts at the Area Councils.


Wike disclosed this in Abuja when swore in the newly appointed Coordinator of the Satellite Towns Development Department, Abdulkadir Zulkiflu.


He noted that he just discovered that comprehensive cleanings and sanitation have not been going on at the Area Councils, yet every month, files will be brought to his office for payment.


He charged the new Coordinator to liaise with the Area Council’s Chairmen to enforce proper sanitation before processing any form of payment.


“Also, in cleaning the satellite towns, let me just say clearly, that is an area of fraud, that we are seeing a lot of fraud. Because we do not even know whether they are cleaning the place, and at the end of the day, they put in paper to pay.


” The other day I was coming back from Kwali, and I called the Permanent Secretary, Area Councils, I say ‘Look at the roads, look at the whole refuse, if I didn’t pass here now, at the end of the month, they would have put paper, money, pay’.


So, what we have done now, is to make sure that all the Area Council Chairmen are involved in vetting before payment is carried out. Now you are coming, you are the Coordinator, you make sure that these things are done very well before you send me any paper.


“See it as that Mr President finds you worthy to contribute at this point in time, to national development, particularly as regards the Federal Capital Territory Administration. So many people are looking for this opportunity, so many people lobbied”, he added.
