Serving and retired directors of the Federal Capital Territory Administration FCTA have commended President Bola Tinubu and Federal Capital Territory FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike for the establishment of FCT Civil Service Commission, Women Affairs Secretariat and exiting the FCT Administration from the Treasury Single Account TSA.
He also disclosed that the President approved the creation of a Mandate Secretariat for Women Affairs and the FCT Civil Service Commission to allow for staff career progression.
Reacting to the developments, League of Serving and Retired FCTA Directors, through its Chairman, Mr. Lukman Eromosele, lauded the president and Wike “for recording the landmark administrative reforms to reposition the FCTA bureaucracy for unprecedented physical and human development.”
They expressed delight and gratitude to the duo for their courage, foresight and political will to effect “this far-reaching financial and structural reforms in barely two months”, saying it would definitely take the FCT to an enviable level of development.
Eromosele who particularly lauded the decision to establish the Commission said unlike some of the retirees who left the service without the opportunity of progressing beyond the directorate cadre in the service, his serving colleagues, and those to come after them, are now blessed with the opportunity of becoming even Head of Civil Service of the Federation.
The President and the FCT Minister have done very well by seeing the imperative and taking the bull by the horns in making the FCT Civil Service Commission operational within a record period of barely two months.
“Even though, some of us missed out because certain people in power could not muster the boldness and courage to establish this Commission for us, I am indeed very delighted for those of my colleagues who are still in the service, including those who will enter the service later
