According to the Minister, FCT was founded on a platform of unity of Nigeria, a place where all Nigerians can call home.

He added that the Administration has strived to build a Territory of the collective dreams of all Nigerians.

“It is worthy to mention once again, that there now exists a generation of Nigerians from all parts of the country who truly know no other home but the FCT, having been born, schooled, are married and raising families of their own here in the Nation’s capital.

“The dreams of our founding fathers are truly alive in these residents and we should constantly remind ourselves that we are better off together and will achieve much more as a united people and consequently, should resist all efforts to cause divisions within our ranks.”
