The Minister, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has admonished staff of the FCT Administration to live up to their responsibilities or be shown the way out.
Malam Bello who gave the admonition yesterday, Monday, August 26, 2019 when he received hand-over notes from the Permanent Secretary, FCTA, Sir Chinyeaka Ohaa at the FCDA Conference room, Abuja, said his second term will not be wasted in cajoling staff to do their duties.
In his words, Malam Bello said “every agency will be expected to do its work and every head of agency will be held responsible and accountable and this time around, I will not be cajoling, lobbying, pushing you, begging you to do your work. Anybody that does his work will be part of the team and anyone that does not do his or her work will be kicked out”.
He also said attention will be placed on proper information dissemination which he said was inadequate in his first tenure.
While stressing the need for the monitoring of all Secretariats, Departments and Agencies (SDAs), Malam Bello explained that every Minister has targets to achieve and all heads of SDAs must do their part to ensure that those targets were achieved within stated time frames.
He also said that he will focus on the provision of funding for the successful execution of projects that have direct bearing to the upliftment of residents of the territory and the development of the nation’s capital.
The Minister who said he was humbled by his reappointment by President Muhammadu Buhari, said he will ensure that all (SDAs) get the necessary funds to carry out their duties effectively, adding that every head of SDA must be alive to their responsibilities or be kicked out.
He stressed that, “There is going to be enforcement of extant rules and regulations and this is going to cut across boards, including in the SDAs, Area Councils and traditional institutions in the FCT”.
Earlier in his remarks, the Permanent Secretary, FCTA, Sir Chinyeaka Ohaa expressed the delight of the entire staff of the FCTA over the reappointment of Malam Bello as FCT Minister and the appointment of Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu as Minister of State.
While highlighting issues that were still on-going and in public domain in the last three months, the Permanent secretary assured the Minister that all SDAs have been alive to their duties and have given the maximum cooperation and support required for the administration to function effectively.
The Permanent secretary also pledged the cooperation and support of the entire staff of the FCTA for both Ministers to achieve their mandate of taking the FCT to the next level.
