The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has reiterated commitment to ensure the speedy completion of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) FCT Council Secretariat complex in phases within weeks.
Bello, who expressed disappointment at the state of the Secretariat, assured members of the Council that all hindrances to the completion of the Secretariat have been cleared and that the contractor mobilize to site.
The Minister spoke when he was accompanied by the Executive Secretary, Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) Engr. Umar Gambo Jibrin, on a recent visit to the Secretariat under construction.
His words: “I am surprised that the building is still like this because I thought that by now it would have progressed more than this.
But, I assure you that the contractor will be mobilized to site to complete at least the first phase because we agreed that the complex will be completed in phases.
“I can also assure you that when the first phase is completed, the building will be more benefitting than any other in the country.”
Earlier while welcoming the Minister, the Council Chairman, Comrade Emmanuel Ogbeche thanked the Minister for his continued support to the Council, especially in his efforts to ensure the speedy completion of the Council’s secretariat.
He lamented the lack of a befitting secretariat for the council and the slow pace of work at the site, calling on the Minister to make good his promised to complete the secretariat complex.
Ogbeche also called on the Minister to provide the Council with buses for conveying members to and from union events as well as for sustainable investments that would take the union to the next level.
Similarly, one time Chairman of the Council, Comrade Jacob Edi, commended the Minister for his accessibility and purposefulness.
He expressed confidence that the minister will make good his promise of ensuring the completion of the FCT NUJ Complex which, according to him, should be befitting of the status of the Territory.
