President Tinubu offers six-month extension for FCT head of service



Tinubu swears in 17-new Commissioners

President Bola Tinubu has granted a six-month extension of service for Samuel Atang, the newly appointed Head of Service of the Federal Capital Territory Civil Service Commission.

The extension was communicated through a letter signed by Chidi Amadi, Chief of Staff to the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday.

In the letter addressed to the Head of Service, Amadi stated that the extension would commence on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, coinciding with Atang’s 60th birthday.

Atang, along with other officials, was sworn in on March 18 by the Chief Judge of the FCT High Court, Justice Husseini Baba-Yusuf, represented by Justice Sylvanus Oriji.

The extension aims to provide Atang with the opportunity to stabilize processes for the restructuring of the FCT Administration, following the inauguration of the FCT-CSC.

According to the letter, the extension is essential to ensure the smooth transition and consolidation of ongoing initiatives within the FCT Administration.

Amadi’s letter emphasized the importance of Atang’s continued service in stabilizing and consolidating the administrative structure of the FCT Administration, especially in light of recent changes with the FCT Civil Service Commission’s establishment.
