FCT, Abuja — President Bola Tinubu has reversed the appointment of Dr. Magdalene Ajani as the permanent secretary of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).

The decision was made in response to protests by FCTA staff following President Tinubu’s announcement of Ajani’s appointment last week.

Lukeman Oramosele, chairman of the League of Retired and Serving FCTA Directors, expressed gratitude to Tinubu for this action.

Oramosele also commended the FCT minister, Nyesom Wike, for his role in facilitating the quick and sensitive intervention that led to the reversal of the appointment. Oramosele criticized Ajani’s appointment as “unnecessary, illegal, and detrimental” to the authority of the President, who had already approved the establishment of the FCT Service Commission.

The workers expressed their appreciation to Tinubu and the FCT minister for their commitment to implementing comprehensive reforms that would improve the administration, boost employee morale, increase productivity, and enhance public service delivery.

“They [Tinubu and Wike] have been able to achieve so much in human, institutional and physical development of the nation’s capital,” Oramosele said on behalf of the league.

“It is obvious we are in for good times and better days, not just as staff-serving or retired, but also contractors handling FCTA or Federal Government projects in the FCT are happy because they are working and money is coming non-stop.

“The entire country is hopeful, even though there are challenges, but the captain of the ship is steering away from the storms into calm waters, and we can see and feel hope.”

Ajani was appointed to take over as the new permanent secretary, replacing Olusade Adesola, who is set to retire from service on May 29, 2024.
