OrderPaperToday – The Senate has frowned at the high cost of construction and properties in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja just as it charged all secretariats, departments and agencies in the FCT Administration to double the current internally generated revenue by June twenty sixteen.

Chairman, Senate Committee on FCT, Senator Dino Melaye made the submissions on behalf of the Senate at a meeting with the FCT Minister, Muhamnad Bello, chairmen of Area Councils and other stakeholders in the Territory.

This was even as it enjoined the six Area Council Chairmen in the territory, to wake up to their responsibility of expected good governance at the grassroots.

Senator Melaye said the meeting was meant to effect a change and turn a new leaf in the way government is being administered in Nigeria promised that the senate would enhance beauty and status of the Territory.

In his remarks, the Minister of FCT advocated amendment to some of the legislations and laws governing the Territory, which he said were old and no longer in tandem with current realities.

Mr. Bello called for the support of the senate in amending the laws, which according to him, would help in proper implementation of the policies and programmes of the ministry.
