The opposition says there is need for democracy in the FCT
Adejobi Peter, the Labour Party Chairman, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Wednesday in Abuja, said that the FCT was in dire need of the mayoral position more than ever.
While speaking on certain sectors demanding constitutional amendment, Peter said that a mayor for the FCT would make governing of the zone stress-free.
?We need someone that will be accountable, someone that will coordinate the activities of the entire FCT under one administrative umbrella,? he said.
Peter further added that the FCT political settings should be a democratic system where people can vote candidates they choose. According to him, the territory needs to be coordinated by an elected representative who is not the minister.
?Let the people reap the benefits of democracy, allow their wishes to prevail, then voter apathy would be a thing of the past,? he said.
