The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Administration has confirmed that it is one of the Federal Government agencies that has been awarded 19 constituency projects to ‘implement’ in Kogi West Senatorial District.
In a statement reacting to media report on the projects, the Deputy Director / Chief Press Secretary in the FCTA, Muhammad Hazat Sule, said that the constituency projects are the ones being undertaken by the Federal Government, “which the FCT Administration was given the responsibility as a Federal Government Agency to execute.”
Muhammad Hazat, who frowned at the media insinuation that the FCTA abandoned its immediate constituency, which is the FCT to embark on projects in Kogi State, said: “the FCT Administration is simply an implementation Agency, a role that is also being played by other Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA) of the Federal Government in respect of the Constituency Projects across the country.
“For reference purposes, this information can be verified and tracked online in the list of approved constituency projects as contained in the 2016 Appropriation Act; specifically, projects number 2498 to 2506.
“There are a total of 2,515 constituency projects in the Act, out of which 9 projects were earmarked for execution in Kogi West Senatorial District for which the FCTA was listed as the implementing MDA.
“The Newspaper ought to have ordinarily balanced their story by contacting the FCT Administration for clarification, thereby fulfilling the major bedrocks of journalism, which are objectivity and fairness.
“The FCT Administration therefore, wishes to advise media organizations to endeavor to balance their stories, as its doors are always open for any kind of inquiry on any matter that concerns it.” [myad]
