The Federal Government has started taking steps to reposition the Federal Integrated Staff Housing (FISH) Program to improve the lives of Nigerians.
Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, the Federation’s Head revealed that key infrastructure will be built on estates occupied by civil officials under the Federal Integrated Staff Housing program.
According to Abdul Ganiyu Aminu, the director of Press and Public Relations in the office of the Head of Service, Yemi-Easan made the revelation during the commissioning and handing over of erosion/flood control and road improvement works at Amal Pepple Public Servants’ Housing Estate in Abuja’s Lugbe neighbourhood on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the Civil Service Head announced that an Inter-Ministerial Implementation Committee on FISH has been resurrected to give the Federal Government’s intervention efforts more teeth.
The Committee’s members will work together to provide infrastructure and amenities such as roads, water supply, and lighting to the committee’s members.
Dr Yemi-Esan noted that the Federal Government intervened to make civil servants’ homes more pleasant and conducive to their duties, allowing them to be more devoted to their duties and productive.
She urged Nigerians to take responsibility for the intervention projects and ensure that they are properly maintained.
The Ecological Fund Office’s assistance, according to the Head of Service, will go a long way in alleviating the dangers often connected with erosion and perennial floodings, such as the loss of lives and property.
She praised Mr Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Dr Habiba Lawal, Permanent Secretary, Ecological Fund Office, and other officials and project handlers for their dedication to completing the projects on time and budget.
