The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) yesterday said it had disbursed the N3,726,007,503.49 to the six Area Councils in the FCT and other stakeholders as statutory allocation for the month of November 2021. FCT Minister of State, Dr. Ramatu Aliyu, who presided over the 160th Joint Account Allocation Committee (JAAC), urged both political and those who make and implement policies to ensure that the funds were used for reasonable human development.

Aliyu also urged Area Council chairmen to be prompt in evacuating refuse dumps in their various areas of jurisdiction, and also embark on projects that will justify the money being received. While she called for more cooperation between politicians at the grassroots and those who drive the bureaucracy of government, she said the administration would not fail to respond promptly to issues that promote human development.

According to her, records of the disbursed funds showed that there was ” a major decline in revenue from N4,476,067,191.05 billion disbursed in the month of October to N3,726,007,503.49billion in the month of November, representing 16.8 per cent decrease.
