Jonathan urges maintenance culture among Nigerians

A 1000-unit of houses was built by the Nigerian Police.


The Federal Government has emphasized strict maintenance culture for every asset, whether public or private, to avoid decay of infrastructure.

President Goodluck Jonathan said on Tuesday that “it is sensible to always avoid eventual capital costs by paying regular attention to an existing asset.”

The President, represented by the Vice President, Namadi Sambo, stated this at the commissioning of Sunday Adewusi Housing Estate, Dakwa, Dei-Dei, Abuja. The estate was built by the Nigeria Police.

He commended the leadership of the Nigeria Police “for their diligent implementation of the housing project in their quest to providing excellent accommodation for men and officers of the Police Force which will motivate them towards effective and efficient service delivery.”

He said “it is instructive and commendable to note that these 1000 units of 3, 2 and 1 bedroom houses at Dakwa, Dei-Dei, Abuja were developed through Public, Private Partnership between a reputable developer and the Police Cooperative Society Ltd. which financed the project”.

While thanking the Nigeria Police Force under the present Inspector-General, Mohammed Abubakar, for building 2000 housing units just in two years, Mr. Jonathan noted that “Officers and Men who are beneficiaries will pay for the houses through the National Housing Fund (NHF) loans. The Nigeria Police Force had accesses to this facility, through the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN)”.

Mr. Jonathan said one of the key pillars of his administration’s transformation agenda is the Public Private Partnership development model and attention to practical mortgage and home financing, as he urged all sectors as well as Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to emulate the Nigeria Police Force.

Earlier, the Minister of Police Affairs, Abduljelili Adesiyan, said the estate was built to enhance the welfare of officers and men of the Nigeria Police as it will assist in the area of accommodation in the FCT.

He said the gesture will undoubtedly make the police to effectively carry out the mandate of maintaining internal security of the nation.

In his remark, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, said the vision behind the 1000 units of Sunday Adewusi Housing Estate through Public Private Partnership, was to ease the housing deficit and provide comfortable houses to the Nigeria Police.

He also said the 1000 housing units in Abuja was one of the earlier housing units to be completed in all the states of the federation.

He noted that housing is the most important thing to human beings and those who work tirelessly day and night desire a decent accommodation hence the execution of the housing estate.

Both the Chairmen Senate and House Committees on Police Affairs, Paulinus Nwagwu and Usman Bello Kumo respectively, as well as Chairman Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro, commended the Inspector-General of Police and solicited more funding for all security agencies in order to deliver timely and efficient service delivery.
