The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, in Nigeria has called for a closer collaboration between the Administration and Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) in road maintenance across the territory.
The FCT Minister of State Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, made the call when the management staff of Federal Road Maintenance Agency led by its Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Engr. Nuruddeen Rafindadi, paid her a courtesy visit in Abuja Nigeria’s capital.
The Minister who commended the efforts of the Agency in road management, also noted that FERMA has diligently and competently carried out its functions across the length and breath of the nation.
She promised that the Administration will continue to strengthen the relationship between both organisations, just as she called on residents of the territory not to vandalize FERMA facilities in the territory.
In his remarks, the Managing Director of Federal Road Maintenance Agency, Engr. Nuruddeen Rafindadi, congratulated the minister over her appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari, stressing that the FCT Administration is very important to FERMA as a host city to many government agencies.
Engr Rafindadi, also noted that the FCT Administration is presiding over a state and at the same time carrying out administrative tasks for the presidency, just as he urged the Administration to treat other agencies as special.
While congratulating the Minister on what he described as “long deserved recognition”, he also pledged to consolidate the cordial relationship in road maintenance within the territory.
“We are here on informal visit and to use the occasion to congratulate you on your long deserved recognition both for the nation and your party, the All Progressives Congress, APC. You really worked for the development of women and by extension the nation.
“To us at FERMA, the territory is very important to us as host government agency and large number of our professional colleagues reside in Abuja. Please treat everybody as special,” she stressed.
