2015: Again, FCT Minister drops hint of exit from cabinet

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Bala Mohammed has again hinted of possible end to his administration in the Federal Capital Territoy(FCT). His comments at his official residence while hosting guests who paid him sallah homage,were indications that the minister would quit the cabinet to focus on his speculated Bauchi State governorship ambition. The minister informed them that he was celebrating his last sallah as minister in the building, and commended President Goodluck Jonathan for reposing confidence in him, and for keeping him in office continuously for about five years to render his services to the nation. “For us, we are coming to the end of our administration. Time is coming to an end. For me, if I have the opportunity, I will be somewhere else,” he had told the guests. Senator Mohammed while inaugurating a committee headed by FCT Police Commissioner, Joseph Mbu, to rid the city of miscreants, destitute people and all manner of illegalities, had stated that he was not afraid of being sacked, saying he was ready to leave President Jonathan’s cabinet whenever he was asked to. Then he said, “I am not afraid of being changed. They had to change cabinet before I came here and so I am under a strict notice, my sister (Minister of State, Oloye Olajumoke Akinjide) and I, anytime that God says we will go, we will go. But while we are here, we will do our duty; we are not afraid of being changed.” Speaking during the sallah homage, Senator Mohammed stated that his administration had attracted N1.8 trillion ($11 billion) worth of private capital investments to Abuja since April 2010 when he assumed office.
