“This is part of his renewed hope agenda to ensure that people in rural communities were not left out in the development efforts of the current administration,” he said.
Aduda while speaking during the visit, said they were at the Minister’s office to congratulate him on his appointment as well as thank Mr. President for the appointment of Zaphania Jisalo as minister.
He added that the FCT will support the renewed hope agenda for the good of FCT people and Nigerians.
