Minister Nyesom Wike Emphasizes Career Progression for FCT Civil Servants
Speaking during the inauguration of a five-kilometre dual carriageway in Kuje area council of the FCT on Monday, Wike reiterated the significance of this development in facilitating career advancement opportunities for civil servants within the FCT administration, allowing them to ascend to the position of permanent secretaries.
President Bola Tinubu had given his approval for the establishment of the Civil Service Commission for the FCT back in October 2023, marking a pivotal step towards enhancing administrative efficiency and employee welfare within the Nigerian capital city.
Wike, in his remarks, expressed optimism regarding the positive impact of the impending commission’s establishment, emphasizing President Tinubu’s commitment to the welfare and development of the FCT.
He urged Nigerians to continue supporting Tinubu’s agenda, asserting its tangible manifestation in the form of infrastructural projects and institutional reforms.
Addressing broader societal challenges, particularly poverty and insecurity, Wike underscored the imperative of collaborative efforts across political divides.
He highlighted the collaborative approach adopted by the FCT administration and area council chairmen in addressing these multifaceted issues, emphasizing the universality of their impact irrespective of political affiliations.
“The fight against poverty and insecurity transcends political boundaries,” remarked Wike. “We must unite in our efforts to combat these challenges, leveraging collective resources and expertise for the betterment of all residents within the FCT.”
In closing, Wike reaffirmed the administration’s unwavering commitment to fostering inclusive growth and security, echoing the sentiment that concerted efforts, bolstered by political will and public support, are instrumental in effecting meaningful change within the region.
