The Shame inside the Ministry of Abuja FCT


The fight to end corruption and mismanagement of funds in Nigeria appears to remain a lip service to calm the nerves of the international community who have proven to have the powers that Nigerian official bow to. This is as Wikileaks have exposed through its website how our leaders jostle to reach the Ambassadors of the United State of America to gossip over their activities in and around the Aso Rock. through its examinations of the various Federal Ministries of the federation has come to the educated conclusion that the symptoms of Nigeria’s administrative maladies lie within the manner the Ministry prioritizes and implements its budget.

  1. While I do not wish to be seen as making excuses for the FCT administration, I wish to draw attention to some factual errors in the report. Abuja has a land mass of 8,000 square metres and not 2,500 as indicated in the report. Estimated population for abuja @ planning stage was 1 million people and infrastructure was built for that number. Population rise is one challenge abuja’s managers are trying to cope with but I must add that it is no excuse for what I have seen in d pictures.
