The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has promised to stop at nothing in eradicating illiteracy in all the rural areas.

Permanent Secretary FCTA, Olusade Adesola, gave the assurance during the 2022 end of the year fiesta organised by FCT Department of Mass Education in Karu, Friday.

He said the Department, which is saddled with the responsibility of making sure that people at all levels know how to read and write, would always be supported to do more.

Olusade, who was represented at the event by Faseyi Nathaniel, commended the efforts of the current Director of the Department, Titilayo Alayande, for her innovations that had repositioned the centres across the 6 area councils.

According to him, a better future could only be achieved when people get the requisite knowledge, noting that Department of Mass Education was driving the programme well.

“We are going to make sure illiteracy is eradicated at all levels in the Federal Capital Territory, by doing so it will impact positively on the residents,” he pledged.
