About 118 staff of the Federal Capital Territory Administration removed from office in 2004, 2005 and 2006 under a controversial downsizing has petitioned the National Assembly.
The spokesman of the group, Bar. Mohammed Kudu, told journalists in Abuja that they had to appeal to the lawmakers through their respective committees of public petitions in the hope and belief, that justice that is being denied them over these years can be enthroned.
He berated the FCTA for maliciously and unjustly removing them from service which he said, has prompted them to challenge the matter in court which they got judgment in their favour.
Bar. Kudu wondered why the officials who heeded the advice of the then FCT Minister Dr. Aliyu Modibbo, to settle out of court on an administrative platform have been left in the cold, despite series of letters of appeal and reminders to the various ministers who succeeded him including incumbent Senator Bala Mohammed.
According to him, the administration has been adopting several ploys to frustrate justice.
