In line with the Civil Service Commission Act, CSCA of 2018,
the Federal Capital Territory Administration says all is set to appoint nine Permanent Secretaries for the nine Secretariats of FCTA.

FCT Minister, Mr Nyesom Wike made this known while fielding questions from journalists, after inspecting some road projects in Abuja

He noted that President Bola Tinubu had approved the implementation, towards the fulfillment of the renewed hope agenda.

Wike noted that the most senior directors in the FCTA would be appointed as permanent secretaries for the Administration’s secretariats, namely Agriculture and Rural Development, Transport and Economic Planning, Revenue Generation and Public Private Partnership.

Others are Education, Social Development, Legal Services, Area Councils, Health and Environment, and Women Affairs.

He said he had met with all senior directors in the FCTA to inform them of the development and tasked them on dedication to duty.

“President Tinubu in his wisdom and Renewed Hope agenda, insisted that the 2018 Act must be implemented, which has given FCT a Civil Service Commission.

“By this, the FCTA will have its own Head of Service, and then of course, it will have permanent secretaries for the nine secretariats.

The minister also said he had approved the promotion of about N8,000 workers, adding that the beneficiaries should pay back by putting in more effort and commitment to their jobs.

Wike expressed displeasure over delays in moving files, and warned the directors against any delay that would sabotage the Administration’s efforts.

“So, it is better to let them know that if Mr President has done this for you, you should also be able to reciprocate by committing yourself to work harder.

“We have told them that no file will stay in a director’s office for more than three to four days, so that the work can move on, and they have agreed to that,” Wike said.
