The employments had been authorized by his predecessor and the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

“But what we are talking about today is employment for the future. I, personally after the analysis of those things, said ‘How will you employ somebody who is 52 years old as a civil servant?” Fubara queried.
