The FCT Minister, Barrister Ezenwo Nyesom Wike has charged the newly inaugurated Mandate Secretaries on dedication, diligence, and commitment to service.

Wike said, “Today, we mark the beginning of a new chapter, one that demands dedication, diligence, and a steadfast commitment to service.”

The minister noted that the inauguration of the Mandate Secretaries who are like State Commissioners is embarking on the journey of renewed hope and transformation for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“As Mandate Secretaries, your role in this journey of transformation is pivotal. You are not only advisors but also leaders and implementers of our policies. You have a duty to translate our vision into tangible actions that will shape the future of the FCT.”

‘Your appointment to these crucial positions reflects not only your individual capabilities, but also the collective trust and expectations that the government and the people of the FCT have placed in you.”

“This task has been entrusted to us by His Excellency. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and it comes at a time when our beloved capital city needs renewal.”

” I urge you to approach your responsibilities with unwavering dedication, for service is a privilege that often demands sacrifices. Be prepared to make those sacrifices, as our mission is greater than any one of us.”

He enjoined the Mandate Secretaries, to synergize among yourselves, share ideas, and support each other in your roles, noting that working together and learning from each other, we can overcome challenges more effectively and achieve our goals.

Wike disclosed that his administration would pay attention to the development of satellite towns.

The prosperity and well-being of our residents extend beyond the city center, and it is our responsibility to ensure that all areas of the FCT experience progress and development, he said.

Meanwhile, the minister disclosed that the focus will be on the enhancement of the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) profile.

“We must explore innovative ways to raise the necessary funds to support our development agenda. This is crucial to finance the ambitious projects and initiatives we have planned.”

According to the Minister, other areas of focus is Public transportation as a major challenge that we must address comprehensively.

“No modern city can function effectively and efficiently without a reliable and comprehensive public transportation system.
We are committed to establishing an integrated and efficient transport network that meets the needs of our residents.”

“Environmental sanitation is another pressing concern, as expressed by our residents. Clean and well-maintained surroundings are not only a reflection of our city’s pride but also a fundamental requirement for a healthy and prosperous community.”

“It is a collective responsibility of both the government and the citizens, and we must work collaboratively to ensure a cleaner and greener FCT.”

Wike urged FCT residents to collaborate closely with law enforcement agencies to ensure a safe a secured environment, adding that Security should be a shared responsibility,
