As you can see, the FCTA has set a Programme to reward hardwork and we want to assure you that more of these will be coming. Stated DR. Atang.

While urging other SDAs to look inwards with a view to struggling to be part of the reward system, the MSD praised the 2023 Awardees for putting on their thinking caps, generating more revenues and coming up with initiatives that will improve service delivery ahead of the year 2024.
