The FCT minister, Muhammad Musa Bello, has inaugurated board chairmen and their members who were appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bello, while speaking at the inauguration ceremony held at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, on Tuesday, said the board chairmen and their members made sacrifices for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to win the 2016 council elections in the FCT.

He noted that the present administration has been on the right track in the last three years, and called on stakeholders, traditional rulers and entire residents of the FCT to support the newly inaugurated board chairmen so that the FCT continue to be the pride of Nigeria.
Speaking on behalf of the newly inaugurated board chairmen, the new board chairman of the FCT Environmental Protection Board (AEPB), Dr. Bawuro Yahaya, thanked the minister for availing them the opportunity to serve the people of the territory.
