Bello lauds Staff for Driving the Change Agenda
The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Bello, has lauded the staff of the FCTA for their hard work, commitment and support for the Change Agenda.
Bello said this during an interactive session with the staff of FCTA on Friday in Abuja.
“I want to leave a legacy of clean roads, less garbage on the streets, very beautiful and well-kept gardens with trees and flowers as well as well trimmed and well mowed beautiful lawns in Abuja,” he said.
He charged the workers to go the extra mile to ensure that these objectives are achieved and thanked them for supporting the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He assured them that he would convey the message to the President that FCTA workers support his efforts at ensuring a better developed country.
“There is no doubt that all your work and efforts are gradually and surely being recognised.
“These days, when I meet people, I no longer get the complaints and criticisms that they used to make in the past.
“This is a reflection that gradually people are appreciative of the work that all of you are doing,” he said.
He reiterated the commitment of the administration to improve service delivery in waste and facility management, maintenance of the parks and gardens as well as the cleanliness of the city.
According to him, FCTA is working to ensure improved funding for its secretariats, departments and agencies, to effectively and efficiently deliver on this objective.
“We have made a lot of efforts and spent time on infrastructure as well as re-engineering of the various agencies, departments and secretariats.
“My appeal to us is that we should go the extra mile and emphasise on service delivery.
“That is why most of the secretariats and even the agencies, you will notice that we have deliberately funded you more than you were funded in the past,’’ he said.
He noted that the changes were a reflection of the improvement in the revenue stream of the ministry, but more importantly, it was also to empower the members of staff to work hard.
Earlier, the FCTA Permanent Secretary, Mr Chinyeaka Ohaa, urged the staff to do their best by contributing their quota to the development of the territory.
He enjoined all present to work towards creating an enabling environment that would bring peace, promote brotherhood and unity in the country.(NAN)
