Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) REFORMS.

  1. Problem: The territory has been heavily faced with critical bureaucratic bottlenecks and other associated issues such as land administration, housing, infrastructure provisions, transportation and traditional instability, amongst others, due to the influx of people from across the states of the federation.

    Reform Actions
    In April 2010 the FCTA set up a 17-Man Committee to Chart a Roadmap for the Sustainable Development of the FCT
    - In August 2011 the Honourable Minister of FCT, constituted a Committee on the Restructuring and Reorganisation of the FCT Administration with the mandate to:
  2. Restructure and reorganise the Secretariats, Departments and Agencies (SDAs) for better performance
    Recommend optimum utilisation of human capital
    Recommend ways of improving existing infrastructures 

    Main Achievements
    Synergies have been created between Secretariats, Departments and Agencies (SDAs) to work together in attaining the goals and vision of the FCT.
    - All the sectors of the FCTA have seen transformation with collaboration of private sector in transportation, health service improvements leading to a reduction in infant mortality and an improvement in education services.
    - Road accidents have reduced
    - Increased access to potable water and
    - FCTA have seen increased implementation of policies, programmes, initiatives and schemes that will facilitate the development/provision of infrastructure.

    Key Challenges
    Inadequate funding;
    - Absence of enabling laws in some Agencies;
    - Weak systems and processes that allow leakages in the Revenue Collection System;
    - Lack of full implementation of some completed reports such as the Road Map for Sustainable Development - 2010, and the Restructuring and Reorganisation of FCTA - 2011.
