FCTA Administration Urges Women To Assist In Youth Development

The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has called on women to assist the government to improve areas that will add value to the youths.

The FCTA Director Human Resource Management, Bashir Mohammed made the call on Thursday, when he received the FCT Indigenous Women Forum on a courtesy visit to his office.

He explained that FCT Administration would continue to do well if the women who are key actors in the development of family values, keep to their roles.

Mohammed said; “FCT women should continue to support the government in developing the city, by encouraging the youths to champion ideas that will impact positively on the city.

“Government needs the full cooperation of all especially the women because of their closeness to the youths, so the women should always encourage them to contribute to the development of Abuja”.

The Director told the women that FCT Administration was keen on issues that would have direct impact on them.

He urged them to work hand in hand with the Administration towards developing the city.

The Chairperson of FCT Indigenous Women Forum, Esther Tawasimi sought for FCTA’s help in area of appointing women as Directors in departments, agencies and boards.

She said; ” the women are not being carried along, “most of our women are at home those who have served in the FCTA/Area Councils who retired as Directors, the minister of FCT should consider them and other women for political appointment.

“Many of our daughters who have graduated from schools are at home doing nothing, we appeal to the FCT Administration led by Malam Muhammad Bello to kindly consider their employment/ empowerment.”

Mrs Tawasimi also asked for help in areas of admission into FCT higher institutions and scholarship.
