Bwari Area Council And Its Future

When the Bwari Area Council was created out of the then Abuja Municipal Area Council, it was a right step towards a right direction for the Federal Capital Territory administration whose motive was to bring its administrative closer to its people on the one hand and on the other hand to create a political awareness for the people of Bwari who view such a development as an opportunity to showcase and project the rich cultural heritage inherited from their ancestors.

With its land boundaries bordering Niger, Kaduna and Nasarawa states respectively, the Bwari area council soon became the food basket of the Federal Capital Territory and a level playing ground for political aspirants. Though with little social and infrastructural development in terms of road network, educational and health facilities orchestrated by its former leaders whose ambition was to gather more wealth and riches for their families without considering the future of posterity.

From Honourable Samson Baba Galuyi, Honourable Isa Dara Bwari and Honourable Peter Yohana Ushafa, alias Obama, the story has remain the same without any change in the political terrain of the Bwari area council due to the fact that the indigene syndrome to a large extend had crippled, retrogressed and hampered the development of the people and its environs.

In fact, the present chairman was even blackmailed as a none indigene in order to discourage his potential electorate during the last council polls. But because it was a divine assignment for him, no amount of blackmail was able to stop him from emerging as the people's choice.

Throughout my 16 years of practice as a Legal Practitioner within the Bwari area council my experiences and my conscience will never fail me, particularly as I was privileged to handle cases emanating from Sumpe village, Kawu, Shere, Dnaboyi and Kogo ( Chieftency tussle), a development which gave me a panoramic view of the land mass of the area council; the plight of the people have been the lack of portable drinking water , road network and lack of primary healthcare to cater for the immediate needs of the people after casting their votes to their leaders all of which were candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The harbinger for the beginning of a new dawn for the people of Bwari area council was divinely ushered in to rekindle the hopes of the people following the last council polls which gave the All Progressive Congress (APC) an overwhelming victory in favour of a stone which was once or twice rejected by the builders and soon became the head corner stone. He is no one else but the new executive chairman of Bwari area council Honourable Musa Dikko.

This new dawn for the people of Bwari area council of the Federal Capital Territory witnessed a lot of challenges to be addressed in the interest of a brighter and more prosperous future for the people, as its primary assignment ranges from lack of electricity for the people, prompt payment of salaries, probing the past administration f or its corrupt practices as well as creating more primarily schools, and primary health care units to cater for the health challenges of the people and their educational upbringing.

In fact, one of the paramount challenges will be for him to make the area council more attractive to new prospective investors by working the public highways from War Collage camp, to the T- Junction and then the road from the market to Law School. With this project in mind, the future of the people of Bwari area council must have been carefully and tactically taken care of. Another issue which hitherto had dwindle the future hope of the people of this area council is the fact that the leaders of the past administration had developed a tribal sentiment to the extent that any proposal for the development of the area council by a none indigene is never taken serious, as successive appointments to see the chairman would be frustrated, either by his lack of seriousness to see the person concern or by their immediate protocol officers, especially if you don't speak the Gbagyi language.

Going by my years of practice, experience and acquaintance with the community I have been able to map out a research to get the opinions of the people concerning the conduct of the present administration and the response have always been that '' Thank God we now have a chairman who is friendly and willing to listen to the common man. We are happy that we now have a chairman who goes to the people to ascertain their problems.''

I remembered when I was given an assignment by the African Affairs Council in Texas the United States of America to solicit on behalf of the down trodden people of Dnaboyi village, under Bwari Area Council, for the approval of a government primarily school to cater for the educational needs of over two hundred children. It took me more than three months on various appointments to see Peter Yuhana Ushafa to no avail. But as a lawyer I had to abandon the chairman's office and exploit other options to address the issue through the educational secretariat and then to the FCT Universal Basic Education Board (UBEB) and the school became a reality.

On the 13th, August, 2016, when I visited Dnaboyi I was satisfied to an extent with a team of journalists on the work done. Though no borehole and toilet facilities, it will be in the best interest of the present administration to complete what we started. With the present administration of the Bwari council the future of the people is guaranteed and protected as the chairman now has a listening ear to sensitive issues affecting the development of the people irrespective of tribal, religious or political background.

It is therefore my submission and conclusion that before he completes his God given assignment for his people, the Bwari area council shall become the paradise of the FCT, where many people will like to live and invest, thus making its future more conducive for everyone, a development which will pave his way for other further political ambition to higher height, as well as bringing the people of Bwari area council to the full realisation of the dividend of democracy.
