FCTA fixes date for inauguration of Area Council Chairmen

The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA has scheduled the inauguration of newly elected Area Council chairmen on June 14 2022, following court ruling delivered by Justice Ibrahim Mohammed on Thursday 9th June 2022 in Abuja

This was contained in statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the FCT Minister, Mr Anthony Ogunleye.

The Statement says the court has set aside its earlier judgement delivered on Friday the 13th May, 2022 granting a one year extension of the outgoing chairmen and councilors .

Why we want to reiterate that as a law-abiding organization, the FCTA will equally obey this new judgement just as it had complied with the earlier judgement. The Chairmen shall accordingly be inaugurated on Tuesday, June 14, 2022” Mr AOgunleye noted.

The statement therefore urged residents to desist from all forms of illegalities, reminding them that the FCT was a creation of law and all actions of the FCT Administration are guided by the rule of law and this case will not be an exception
