The secretary, Social Development Secretariat (SDS) of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Barr Amanda Pam, has pledged to uplift the lives of women, youths and other vulnerable persons in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Speaking after she assumed office as the new secretary of the secretariat, Pam vowed that he would see that the lives of women and other vulnerable groups in the territory are given a new lease of life
that is meaningful and sustainable.
She therefore urged the staff of the secretariat to join her in working hard to see that a sizeable majority of vulnerable persons are brought out of poverty line, into being able to fend for them.
‘‘I ask for your maximum cooperation and proper guidance as to how this secretariat works. You are on ground and should be able to assist me render to the residents and other stakeholders the much needed services expected of us. We must bring our wealth of experiences and expertise to bear if we have to succeed.’’
Earlier, the outgoing acting secretary, Malam Bashir Muhammad, had stated that he enjoyed the support, good working relationship and cooperation of the entire staff of the secretariat in the one month and 10 days he spent as the acting secretary.
Bashir noted that the new mandate secretary has nothing to worry about, as the workforce, especially, those at the management level, are all good and very much experienced in their various fields of specialisation.
He equally drew the attention of the secretary to the impending carnival and national sports festivals, coming up in next month, just as he urged her to put in her best to see to the success of both festivals.
