Acting executive chairman, Federal Character Commission (FCC), Malam Abdullahi Shinkafi, has said the commission is poised to ensure fairness and equity in the recruitment of personnel into federal ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs).
He also said the commission will ensure fair distribution of infrastructure in line with its mandate.
He stated this Monday in Abuja in an address at a sensitisation programme organised by the Public Affairs and Communication (PAC) department of the commission.
He said: “FCC needs to be heard everywhere. We are poised to ensure fairness and equity in the recruitment process in government ministries, departments and agencies and also in the distribution of infrastructure development.
“We have a big job; the whole nation is looking up to us to unite them together and that is what the FCC anthem is about.
“I want to assure PAC of our maximum support. If funds are available, we will do the needful to support you to carry out your work smoothly because protection of national interest is a priority.”
“Some negative things have been written about FCC which are not true. It is the duty of PAC to ensure that the interest of the commission and country are protected,” Shinkafi said.
Speaking earlier, director of PAC, Mr Dipo Akinshola, said the aim of the event was to enlighten the FCC community. (NAN)
