A delegation of the Federal Character Commission (FCC) has urged indigenes of Lagos State to enjoy their allotted federal quota.
The delegation, which was led by Mr. Abdulwasiu Bawallah, said this during a working visit to the Lagos State House of Assembly Service Commission (LAHASCOM).
According to Bawallah, the visit was to enlighten the commission on the essence of the FCC and to reintroduce its functions to government institutions and the public.
He adds, “The essence of the visit is to shed light on the imbalance in federal quota occupied by Lagosians.”
In his view, the undue marginalisation in the number of Lagos indigenes in federal establishments has become a thing of concern.
He continued, “The purpose of the commission is to make sure there is fairness in the implementation of the quota system as stipulated by the constitution in which Lagos State representation is below its designated quota.”
While noting that the commission’s mandate is to foster equity in public positions in the Federal, State and Local Government, Bawallah said it is equally to balance social amenities and infrastructural facilities.Follow us on social media
