Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Mu­likatu Mukaila

Na­tives of the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory, Abuja have writ­ten to Se­nate Pres­i­dent Bukola Saraki on the re­cent se­lec­tion process for fed­eral di­rec­tor to fill 20 va­cant per­ma­nent sec­re­taries’ slots.

In the let­ter dated Au­gust 7, 2017 by FCT chair­man, Na­tional Youths Coun­cil of Nige­ria, Abubakar Sadiq Ahmed Abaji and chair­man FCT Fo­rum of Area Coun­cils Youth Lead­ers, Ishaq Sal­ihu Kaura, the na­tives urged Saraki to in­ter­vene in the process.

“With em­pha­sis on the last ex­er­cise for the se­lec­tion of Fed­eral Per­ma­nent Sec­re­taries, we plead with the Se­nate to pre­vail on the Of­fice of the Head Civil Ser­vice of Fed­er­a­tion, to con­sider the ap­point­ment of at least one fed­eral per­ma­nent sec­re­tary from the na­tives of FCT, who sat for the ex­am­i­na­tion to fill the va­cant po­si­tions as de­clared.

“We make this plea in line with the con­sti­tu­tional prin­ci­ples of the Fed­eral Char­ac­ter of the Fed­eral Repub­lic of Nige­ria, jus­tice and fair play,” the group said.
