His words: “Today is a great day, a day we cannot forget easily, especially by the people of Kwali and Yaba Chiefdoms.”

“The FCT Administration is doing this as part of the “Renewed Hope Agenda” of Mr. President. This is all about delivery of dividends of democracy to the people,” Garki emphasized.

The Secretary also disclosed that this is after a successful scrutiny, selection and voting process as well as traditional rites were carried out by different Chiefdom Kingmakers in line with the customs and traditions of the Traditional Council in the FCT.

Garki assured the newly appointed Chiefs that the FCT Administration will work in synergy with them to improve the living standards of their subjects.
