The reversal comes few days a protest by staff of the FCTA after President Tinubu’s of Ajani’s posting last week.

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Sunday, chairman of the League of Retired and Serving FCTA Directors, Lukeman Oramosele, appreciated Tinubu for the gesture.

Oramosele also praised FCT minister, Nyesom Wike,for his role in the quick and sensitive intervention culminating into reversal of the posting.

He described Ajani’s posting as “uncalled for, unlawful and inimical” to the powers of the President who has already approved creation of the FCT Service Commission.

The workers appreciated Tinubu and the FCT minister for their determination to ensure wide ranging reforms that would reposition the administration, boost staff morale, improve productivity and ensure effective service delivery to the public.

“They [Tinubu and Wike] have been able to achieve so much in human, institutional and physical development of the nation’s capital,” Oramosele said on behalf of the league.

“It is obvious we are in for good times and better days, not just as staff -serving or retired, but also contractors handling FCTA or Federal Government projects in the FCT are happy because they are working and money is coming non-stop.

“The entire country is hopeful, even though there are challenges, but the captain of the ship is steering away from the storms into calm waters, and we can see and feel hope.”

Ajani was to replace the current permanent secretary, Olusade Adesola, who is expected to retire from service on May 29, 2024.
