Gwagwalada, FCT â€” Residents of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, yesterday called on the newly elected area council chairmen to embrace policies that would guarantee clean environment and curb corruption.
Some residents decried the poor attention given to environmental issues by past administrations.
Mrs Juliet Mordi, a resident of Kuje Area Council, said the level of indiscipline over environment issues in the council was alarming.
Mordi said people in Kuje engaged in improper disposal of refuse and blockedÂ drainages in the town.
She said except adequate attention was given to environmental issues, the environmental situation might lead to the outbreak of diseases.
â€œThe incumbent chairman of Kuje Area Council who has been returned for a second term may have worked in other areas but he never gaveÂ proper attention to environmental issues.
