“Workers are the backbone of our economy and it is our responsibility to provide them with the necessary support and resources to excel.

“We are committed to creating a conducive work environment, improving working conditions, and enhancing the overall quality of life for all FCT workers,” Wike stated.

In line with this commitment, the Minister explained that the government has established the FCT Civil Service Commission to promote transparency, accountability, and career progression for FCT administration workers.
