President Bola Tinubu has removed the Federal Capital Territory—FCT Administration from the Treasury Single Account—TSA, effectively granting them more control over its finances.

The President also approved the establishment of the Civil Service Commission—CSC in the FCT Administration.

Wike announced this during a press conference in Abuja on Friday.

This he said would allow the progression of staff of the FCT Administration.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had introduced the TSA to address irregularities, ensure accountability, curb the incessant number of accounts and enable the tracking of all government revenues.

Wike also revealed that Tinubu has approved the establishment of a Women Affairs Secretariat to address women issues in the FCT Administration.

He said that currently, FCTA had secretariats addressing most development issues but has no specific secretariat that addresses women issues.

According to him, women are critical to the development process of the country, stressing the need for a conscious step towards addressing their issues.

Wike said, “In the world that we are in today, how can you talk about good governance and development without including women?

“I say look, you must create a secretariat that would take care of women like what we have in other states as commissioner of women affairs.

“So, there must be that in FCT to give them that inclusivity.

“As I am talking to You My President has approved that we have a Mandate Secretary for women.”

The minister said that the Mandate Secretary for Women Affairs would likely be inaugurated on Monday.
