Service delivery in 2020, the duty of everyone

27th Jan, 2020 | By Stella Ojeme | ||

The New Year is here with expectations soaring from all angles. Residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and indeed all Nigerians are in high hopes that this year 2020 will offer ease of living as they reel out their demands from government for this fiscal year. Albeit, they are justified as the duty of every responsible and responsive government should be to ensure that all campaign promises made and policies initiated for the year as captured in the budget are executed to the letter.

And in the case of the present Administration, the need to ensure that dividends of democracy in tandem with the Next Level Agenda are optimally delivered to the citizens cannot be overlooked. This, if achieved, will lift the spirits of the citizenry, beam hope and arouse a patriotic sense among them which will in turn yield lesser economic problems and reduce security tension which has continued to threaten the nation. For the FCT, the early passage of the 2020 budget by the two chambers of the National Assembly is a commendable landmark which indicates that this year will no doubt be merry for residents.

The Minister on his part has also promised to continue to fund projects in various sectors that are critical to the development of Federal Capital City (FCC), the satellite towns and villages to enhance the socio-economic lives of residents. But every resident has a role to play to ensure that this year is paddled successfully for all Nigerians, both the leaders and the led. The spirit of national consciousness, patriotism, honesty and loyalty to the national cause should be re-awakened.

Therefore we implore government to see to it that every structure needed for an optimal budget performance is adequately put in place. Also, strategic economic planning to ensure proper policy implementation is necessary for the 2020 fiscal plans to achieve the expected impact. Misplaced priorities, all forms of wastage, corruption, selfish interest and parochial sentiments that are inimical to the country's development must be jettisoned. The nation's security apparatuses must be strengthened to enable them put away incidents of insecurity prevalent in the country presently.

The masses should be ready to co-operate with government through absolute obedience to laws and order as stipulated by the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended). For a difference to be made this year in the country and for efficient service delivery, everyone should be responsible as the duty to build a virile economy is a duty call for all. Abuja Digest Weekly wishes all FCT residents a prosperous New Year.
