FCT na­tives be­rate min­is­ter over de­lay in cabi­net ap­point­ments

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The na­tives of the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT), have frowned over the de­lay in ap­point­ing cabi­net mem­bers by the FCT min­is­ter, Muhammed Musa Bello.

The na­tives who spoke un­der the aegis of Coali­tion of In­dige­nous Groups (COIG), said the min­is­ter had taken too long to ap­point man­date sec­re­taries and spe­cial ad­vis­ers.

A state­ment by the spokesper­son of the group, Yunusa Ah­madu Yusuf, which was made avail­able to news­men in Abuja yes­ter­day, said since the min­is­ter as­sumed duty on Novem­ber 11, noth­ing seemed to be hap­pen­ing in the FCT.

The group said it was not un­aware of the fi­nan­cial chal­lenges fac­ing the coun­try, but would help if the min­is­ter ap­pointed some aides that would sup­port him in run­ning the af­fairs of the min­istry, in­stead of leav­ing sen­si­tive re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in the hands of civil ser­vants.

The state­ment also be­rated the min­is­ter for fail­ing to call for a town hall meet­ing to ad­dress the chal­lenges fac­ing in­di­genes of the ter­ri­tory.
