The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has called on women to assist the government to improve on areas that will add value to Nigerian youth.
Director, FCTA Human Resource Management, Bashir Mohammed, made the call Thursday, when he received FCT Indigenous Women Forum on a courtesy visit to his office.
He stated that FCTA will continue to do well if the women who are key actors in the development of family values, keep to their roles.
He said: “FCT women should continue to support the government in developing the city, by encouraging the youth to champion ideas that will impact positively on the city.
“Government needs the full cooperation of all, especially the women because of their closeness to the youth. So, the women should always encourage them to contribute to the development of Abuja.”
The director told the women that FCTA is keen on issues that will have direct impact on them, and they should work with the administration towards developing the city.
Earlier, chairperson of FCT Indigenous Women Forum, Esther Tawasimi, sought for FCTA’s help in area of appointing women as directors in FCT departments, agencies and boards.
She said the women are not being carried along saying, “most of our women are at home.
