The establishment of the Federal Capital Territory Administration is one of the key elements of the Administrative reforms of former President Olusegun Obasanjo to reposition the FCT towards enhanced service delivery.

The reforms brought about significant changes in the administrative structure of the FCT.

Since its establishment, the FCTA has been administered by the following Ministers.

  • Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai 2004 2007
  • Aliyu Moddibbo Umar 2007 2008
  • Mohammed Adamu Aliero 2008 – Feb. 2010
  • Bala Abdulkadir Muhammed CON -2010-2015
  • Mallam Muhammad Musa Bello 2015 till date


The 1999 Constitution, section 299, provides that the FCT shall have the provision of the Constitution apply to it as if it were one of the States of the Federation. This entails that the National Assembly sits as the State House of Assembly for the FCT whenever it legislates for the FCT.

The President serves as the State Governor of the FCT delegating his powers to the Honourable Minister for the running of the administration whilst the FCT Courts serve as the State Courts for the FCT. Federal Capital Territory is administered in a dual function of a Federal Ministry and a State Government.

Accordingly, its operations are carried out through certain Common Services Departments, Specialized Departments, Secretariats and Agencies.

  • It has a Minister and a Minister of State.
  • The Permanent Secretary is the Accounting Officer, Chief Policy Adviser and Head of the Bureaucracy of the entire FCTA. He reports to the Minister/Minister of State.
  • The Executive Secretary of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) oversees the development of physical Infrastructure of the FCT. He reports to the FCDA Board chaired by the Minister, FCT.
