FCT council chairman tenure: Protesters block Gwagwalada Giri road over extension


Protests broke out in some parts of the Federal Capital Territory on Friday,  over extension of tenure of chairman and councillors of six area councils.

The Minister of the FCT, Mohammed Bello, had ordered the extension of the tenure of the council chairmen and councillors by one more year following a court judgement.

Displaying different placards to show their anger, the protesters block the entrance leading to the minister’s office, calling for the swearing-in of the six elected chairmen, an event earlier scheduled for Friday, May 20.
