FCT minister directs staff on ID cards, frowns at touting at AGIS

The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello has directed that henceforth all staff of the administration should wear their ID cards within the office premises for easy identification. 

Bello, who gave this directive, while receiving briefs from the management team of the Abuja Geographic Information Systems, AGIS, in his office, also frowned at touting at the AGIS. 

The minister stressed that visitors should be admitted into the premises of the FCT Administration based on appointments and be guided to the specific departments they are visiting. 

Emphasising that this would go a long way in bringing sanity to the FCT administration’ premises, thereby assisting in improving government business. 

He also instructed the Department of Security Services and AGIS to find a subtle and civilized way of stopping the activities of touts and land speculators loitering around the AGIS premises. 

Bello maintained that such activities don’t only pose security risk but also attract problems to AGIS and by extension the administration. 

Earlier in her brief, the director, Abuja Geographic Information Systems, Hajiya Jamilah Tangaza, told the minister that 75 to 80 per cent of the 2015 set targets of AGIS have been achieved. 

Tangaza revealed that allocation and revocation functions of the AGIS system were disabled on May 29, 2015 to avoid any fraud
