The Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Dr. Mariya Mahmoud, has called on the senior staff of the Federal Capital Territory Administration to support her and Barrister Nyesom Wike, the Minister of FCT to succeed.

She said without the support and cooperation of the staff, there would not be meaningful development in the Territory.

Mahmoud stated this during her taking over ceremony at the FCDA Conference Hall, Tuesday.

She noted that with support and cooperation of the Directors and other senior staff of the Administration, the mandate of President Bola Tinubu will be effectively delivered in the nation’s capital, Abuja.

The Minister said that Satellite Towns and other key sectors will receive facelift under the current leadership of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Her words: “I am of the firm belief that, together, and with full support of the staff, we will replicate what the Minister has done in Rivers State in the nation’s capital, especially at the Area Councils and the Satellite Towns, so that the lives of our people in the rural areas will be positively touched.”

“It is also instructive to state that maximum commitment, cooperation and loyalty is expected from all the staff, because it will not be business as usual,” she added.

Mahmoud, while saying that everyone in the city must work for the good of the Territory, reiterated that “Abuja, our centre of unity, would not have been what it is today without you all contributing your quota in one way or the other to keep it a functional city.”

According to her, “We will run with the vision of Mr. President, which we will be unveilling as we hit the ground running”.
