This approval is in line with the provisions of Section 2 (2) (a & b) of the Federal Capital Territory Civil Service Commission (Establishment) Act, 2018. This section states that a Chairman and six other members representing each of the geo-political zones of the country should be appointed.

To address the staffing needs within key Agencies of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Abdulkadir Zulkarfi was designated as Coordinator of the Satellite Towns Development Department, Chief Felix Obuah as Coordinator of the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, and Oladiran Olufemi Akindele as Coordinator of the Abuja Infrastructure Investment Centre.

Bahd street vibes understands that to further enhance the administrative framework of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Atang Udo Samuel, the most senior Director in the FCT Civil Service, was appointed as the Head of the FCT Civil Service.

Additionally, several incumbent Directors of the FCT Civil Service were appointed as Permanent Secretaries based on their expertise and regional representation. These individuals include Dr Adams Baba Gana and Wanki Adamu Ibrahim for the North East region, Asmau Muhktar and Dogo Aliyu Wadata Bodinga for the North West region, Olusa Olusegun and Adetoyi Rabiu Kolawole for the South West region, Grace Adayilo and Olubunmi Olowookere for the North Central region, Ibe Prospect Chukwuemeka for the South East region, and Okonkwo Florence Nornubari for the South-South region.
