Technical and Training Officer with the FCT Fadama Office, Alfa Kudu, said machineries had been put in place to ensure sustainability of the FCT Fadama III subprojects.
Kudu in Gwagwalada said that the earlier challenge faced by the project was due to failure of the area councils to pay counterpart funds.
He said that the steps taken by the FCT Minister of State, Mrs Olajumoke Akinjide to ensure full compliance of Area Councils toward counterpart fund payment to the project would strengthen its sustainability.
“Since the payment of counterpart funds by Area Councils, desk officers of the project in the various area councils are really showing commitment in the supervision of the subproject.
“Active involvement of Area Council?s desk officers in the project is a step in the right direction that will guarantee sustainability even at the end of the project,? he said.
Kudu said that efforts by the office to strengthen the activities of Federated Fadama Community Association (FFCA), was also aimed at ensuring sustainability of the project.
He commended the leadership of FFCA in the FCT for its efforts in monitoring subprojects across the FCT, with a view to encourage and address challenges of user groups.
He said that the FFCA was now working to ensure that abandoned projects of Fadama III would be articulated.
Kudu said that the office was in close contact with the various Fadama Community Associations to ensure that their activities were diversified to keep them in business all year round.
