  • PublishedAugust 26, 2017

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has challenged the Federal Character Commission during a visit to him by some of the commission’s officials to mount a campaign to enlighten Nigerians on their activities as well as the on spread of federal appointments.

Mohammed said “Nigerians need to know and appreciate what you are doing, and I think we need more of this interaction. At our level at the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, we will very readily partner with you in the area of enlightenment campaigns because it is going to unite the country better. Once the people have a sense of belonging, then it’s the recipe for unity.

“To do so, you must invest in advocacy, interactions and visits like this.”

“It is gladdening to note here that the objective and the mandate of the Commission go beyond just ensuring that there is a balance, equity and fairness in the federal ministries and parastatals, but that you are also very duly concerned about the spread of infrastructure. I think the two mandates are very important and germane to the unity,
stability and peace of this country,” he stated.

In his response, Secretary of the FCC and leader of the delegation that visited Mohammed, Tukur said “The second mandate of the Commission also extends to the aspect of distribution of socio-economic amenities and infrastructure in the country, and this is one key area that most people have not focused on and we want to focus more on that in the Federal Character Commission now.”
