Orozo community promised to work very closely with the chairman elect for a successful administration.

We are not compelling the chairman elect to do otherwise but we are rather advising him not to make a mistake of appointing a tribe that is not one of the nine indigenous tribes of Abuja as the council secretary so that the tradition will not be broken.”

We don’t want situations where none indigenes will be issued indigenous certificates with impunity. We are only advising that since AMAC is a Gbagyi dominated area council, a Gbagyi person should be appointed Council Secretary Position,” Tukura said.

Tukura said: “We will interface with all the Gbagyi speaking communities in the area council to garner necessary support for the incoming administration and in return the chairman is advice to bring development to the grassroots where majority of the people reside.”
