Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal says the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, deserves a mayor and better recognition.
Tambuwal, who is one of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential aspirants, stated this while meeting with the PDP FCT delegates in Abuja.
He said that, if elected president, he would give better recognition to the FCT indigenes and their plights.
“I believe that there is a lot of work to be done in the FCT. I believe more than the people we met at the FCT deserve more recognition.
“I am not insisting that FCT should be a state but you appoint ministers, sometimes two from a state. What stop you from appointing a zonal Minister from the FCT because FCT is part of the North Central zone?
The presidential aspirant also pledged that if given the mandate, youths and women would receive special attention as they were receiving in Sokoto State today.
On his part, the FCT PDP Chairman, Sunday Zakka, commended the role played by Tambuwal in PDP’s success in the FCT area councils’ election.
Zakka urged Tambuwal to continue his support for the PDP FCT chapter, adding that the party will continue to appreciate him.
