Workers of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) under the Joint Unions Action Committee (JUAC) have protested the deployment of a permanent secretary to the FCTA by the Head of Service of the Federation.

The workers also called for the full implementation of the FCT Civil Service Commission (CSC) Law, 2018, which provides for the appointment of a permanent secretary from the FCTA.

The Office of the  Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) had announced President Bola Tinubu’s approval for posting of 24 permanent secretaries to Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).

Among the affected permanent secretaries is Dr Magdalene Ajani, who was redeployed from the transportation ministry to the FCTA to replace Mr Olusade Adesola who will retire on January 29.

JUAC’s President, Mr Matilukuro Korede, who spoke on behalf of the workers in Abuja on Monday, challenged the deployment, which he described as an aberration of the FCT CSC Law.

Korede recalled that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in October, 2023, approved the im-plementation of the law establishing a CSC for the FCT.

He said that by the development the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, did not have power to appoint a permanent secretary for the FCTA.

It would be recalled that the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, in October, 2023, announced Presi-dent Tinubu’s approval for the establishment of the CSC for the FCT.

Wike had explained that the development would allow career progression for civil servants in the FCTA to become permanent secretaries, who before now could only get to the position of a di-rector.

He explained that the directors could not get to the peak of their careers because there was no CSC for FCT.

The JUAC president, therefore, described the action of the head of service as faulty and called for the full implementation of the FCT CSC Law.
