The House of Representatives has called on the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mr Nyesom Wike, to pay attention to the security of lives and property in the territory.

The Chairman of the House Committee on FCT, Mukthar Betara who made the call in Abuja at the inaugural meeting of the committee also told the minister to leverage his experience and network to improve revenue generation to fund the infrastructural development of the FCT.

According to the Chairman, planning and development of the FCT, secondary and tertiary education, public transport system, and annual budget estimate of the FCTA among others are part of the committee’s oversight responsibilities.

While urging members to dedicate their time and energy to the realization of the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu, the lawmaker noted that the Committee could not afford to fail FCT natives and residents in the task entrusted to them.

Making a case for the less privileged members of the society, member representing Gboko/Tarka Federal Constituency, Regina Akume pleaded with the FCTA to slow down on the demolition of illegal structures within the city.

Responding on behalf of the Minister, the Permanent Secretary, Mr Adesola Olusade urged the committee to work on bills pending before them concerning the development and decongestion of the city capital.
