Federal Capital Minister Challenges Buhari: Probe Me If You Can


The Minister of the Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Bala Mohammed has challenged the incoming administration of General Muhammadu Buhari to probe him, saying that he entertained no fear facing his government to account for his actions in office.

According to him, he has all the documents and records to account for his actions in office in the last for five years.

He spoke to newsmen today at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, while reacting to statements credited to All Progressives Congress (APC) that he was embarking on last-minute award of projects and recruitment despite that the government he is serving winds down on May 29.

“For someone, who has stayed in FCT for five years, definitely I must be accountable for all my actions, and I am ready with all the records and documents that we have with all modesty to justify my actions while I superintended over the place.”

The minister said that APC was wrong to accuse him of panic recruitment when indeed the exercise was approved by the board of the FCDA, saying that all laid down procedures for recruitment were complied with in recruiting the workers.

Bala Mohammed said the incoming government is however at liberty to sack the workers if it found them not useful after taking over on May 29, adding: “the fact that we have lost election does not mean we should just abandon something at the point of conclusion.

“Of course, we will make sure that we are accountable for anything that we have done, and we are in compliance with the federal character principle and the template established.

“Certainly, we have learnt from other MDAs, where we have stampeded some Nigerians because of the test we have carried out under due diligence.

“This time around we want to ensure that we comply with all the requirements for due process in order to employ, we have not concluded them and I hope to conclude before we go.” [myad]
