The Water Board management in the Federal Capital Territory, has hosted its customers and general public to a one-day customer interactive session for optimal service delivery.

The forum provided opportunity for customers to relate and air their diverse complaints and opinions before the management for proper review and resolutions.

Among these complaints are: non- reflection of payments made by customers, outrageous billing, low water pressure, non- functional meters among others.

Due to the persistent problem of non- reflection of Payments made by the customers, the management has set up various platforms whereby bills can be settled.

The Acting General Manager, Dame Joy Okoro, commended the participants for their active contributions, which the Area managers and the management noted for improvement of service.

She urged them to never relent but to continuously improve their services for the benefit of customers and subscribers.

Dame Okoro also added that since many of their customers are civil servants, it makes it difficult for the bills to be settled once it is accumulated.

“I assure you that the monthly distribution of bills will be outrightly attended to in order to avoid debt accumulation”, she promised.

Meanwhile, possible solutions were arrived upon at the session to address the concurrent problems.

Consequently, the customers also appreciated the wonderful works the management is doing, which is worthy of emulation by other parastatals and agencies.

The Acting General Manager, Dame Joy Okoro, explained that the water in Usman Dam has been subjected to laboratory test, and thus has no cholera in it.

She stated that this is to clear the air on the recent outbreak of the dreadful disease which has claimed many lives.

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has dismissed a viral video purporting that a member of the corps confessed to being a bandit.

The suspected bandit, Mr Abdullah Saidu, in the viral video called himself personnel of the Corps.

This is contained in a statement issued by the NSCDC Spokesperson, Mr Olusola Odumosu, in Abuja.

Newsmen report that Saidu was arrested in connection to a group of armed bandits terrorising some parts of Koton Karfe Local Government Area of Kogi.

The spokesperson said that the NSCDC has set up a team to investigate the available records to confirm the authenticity of Saidu’s claims that he was the corps personnel.

“The general public shall be adequately briefed on subsequent findings.“Based on the aforementioned, the purported video where the alleged suspect openly confessed to the crime did not in any way give credence to or affirm his membership to the Corps.

“Experience has shown that criminals are fond of impersonating security operatives in order to divert attention, subvert investigation or get away with the crime,” he said.

Odumosu further noted that the NSCDC was saddled with the responsibility of protecting lives and property amongst others.

“The Corps will not in any way condone any saboteur of national security or sponsorship of criminals.”He reiterated the Corps’ zeal to discharge its statutory mandates without compromise but with humility and integrity.

He said the NSCDC will continue to synergise with sister agencies to combat crimes in the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari said on Sunday he had appointed a board for the NNPC and directed that it should be incorporated within six months, a move that could allow it to sell shares in the future.

The President signed the petroleum bill into law last month which has been in the works for nearly two decades, aiming to overhaul the sector and turn the state-owned oil company into a private firm.

The new oil law requires NNPC to be incorporated within six months, Buhari said in a statement, appointing Ifeanyi Ararume as NNPC chairman and its current Chief Executive Mele Kyari to lead the firm.

Kyari has said NNPC could consider an initial public offering (IPO) within three years. The incorporation could pave the way for NNPC to sell shares.

Buhari said last month that NNPC made its first profit in 44 years in 2020.
