Elections will be peaceful in FCT, Minister assures

Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Director of Administration, Hajiya Amina Abubakar has expressed that her desire is to see that Nigerian child begs on the street.

She also expressed disappointment that the polity has become rancorous and that the older generation has made the nation insecure, unlike what it used to be when Nigerians travelled across the nation anytime without fear and children were free to interact without religious hindrances.

Hajiya Abubakar made these statements when some members of the FCT Press Corp paid her a valedictory visit yesterday in her office.

She said as she retires, she will get busy doing something else; she said it has been her desire to see that no Nigerian child begs on the street again as God has given enough resources for Nigeria to take care of all Nigerian children.

“It pains me to see children begging on the streets, as I retire, I will involve myself in activities that will take children off the streets.”

She decried the present insecurity in Nigeria today and regretted that in the past Nigerians could travel anytime to any part of the country without fear, just like children were not divided on religious lines.

In her reminiscence she noted that when she was growing up in the barracks, there was no difference between Christian and Muslim children and parents were not afraid of leaving children in the care of others who were not of the same religion with them, but that today, even children are being divided on religious lines and that out of fear, farmers can no more go to the farms.
