Before the decision was made to appoint Engr. Aliyu Ahmed Nahuche as the
General Manager of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Water Board, residents of the
Federal Capital Territory experienced irregular, and to a certain extent unhygienic
water supply in homes, offices and public places.
From the period he became the General Manager, the Water Board witnessed a
glaring and positive turnaround occasioning serious positive impact on its
consumers whose happiness of getting steady and clean water supplied to their
homes and offices has led to outpouring of testimonies and praises of this current
For Engr. Nahuche, a thorough bred professional in Urban Water and a United
Kingdom trained Engineer, focused and goal oriented, an achiever that dared to do
where others dread, his choice to bring and influence turnaround of the fortunes of
FCT Water Board appears to be his undoing.
In fact, we the Integrity Group members of Amalgamated Union of Public
Corporation, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees
(AUPCTURE), where the FCT Water Board is also a member are not left out of
those extolling the virtues and outstanding achievements of Engr. Nahuce whose
leadership acumen and excellent skills in resource management and prudency has
endeared him to the entire water consumers of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
But the gentleman’s choice to distinguish himself by providing excellent leadership
became repulsive and repugnant to some few persons imbedded in them a DNA
that is only endeared to failure and corrupt personal aggrandisement of the
resources meant for the good and well-being of the citizenry and in the instant case,
residents of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Despite the remarkable turnaround of the fortunes of FCT Water Board which is
evident to all eyes, and as lawyers say “ipso liquitor” (the thing speaks for itself), the
FCT Chairman of AUPCTURE, Aliyu Maradun, self-style antagonist hell-bent to
ensure that the general manager vacate his seat, exit the board and be slandered for
sins he did not commit and knows nothing about. In fact, for imaginary sins that
exist only in their vain imaginations and minds; just because of applauds he receives
when delivering excellent services, thriving where others have failed, and also being
a stumbling block to their ill-conceived plans to corruptly enrich themselves for the
purpose of funding Aliyu Maradun’s Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Presidential
ambition. They say he who comes to equity comes with clean hands – contrariwise,
Aliyu Maradun the Union Leader, who is currently under investigation by one of
the country’s leading anti-corruption agency on multiple and separate
embezzlement cases as Chairman of AUPCTURE and as an employee of FCT
Water Board; awaiting prosecution has no moral right to accuse the General
Manager of any malfeasance.
We sincerely advice such persons not to allow themselves be used in running down
a genuine cause under the leadership and management of the current General
Manager; rather join hands in effecting positive turnarounds of the fortunes of FCT
Water Board just like other numerous staff of the board and residents of the FCT
are appreciating the excellent services they are receiving from the Water Board.
We are the choices we make!
