The Federal Capital Territory Administration has assured residents of the territory that palliative items in various stores across the territory are safe and secured.
FCT Minister of State, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu who stated this in Abuja, revealed that security agents are being deployed to man strategic areas.
She added that the FCT Administration had in the past few months distributed all items procured and donated to the Area Councils, Community Associations, Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Professional bodies/Associations in a transparent manner.
Aliyu however warned members of the public not be lured into criminality under the guise of ‘hoarded’ palliative food items in the territory.
According to her, the warehouses are supposed to stock supplies for emergency response including the recurrence of cases of COVID-19.
