The FCT Administration (FCTA) has unveiled plans to digitalise the data base of FCT Archives. FCT Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed, disclosed this yesterday during the celebration of FCT Archives and History Bureau, which was tagged "Impact of Archives in Modern Day Public Sector Activities." The minister, represented by the FCT Director of Establishment, Mr. Nuru Ahmed, explained that the documentation of data would make the FCT archives more robust and functional. He said the FCT archives was created with the mandate to collect, preserve and manage important records and documents of the administration, adding that all secretariats, departments, agencies and area councils of the FCT are primary sources for information and would be empowered to serve as key stakeholders in the process of digitisation. "Approval has been given for the six area councils to own mini archives to be manned by liaison officers of the FCT archives and we enjoin the management of area councils to cooperate with the liaison officers by making all necessary information available to ensure the success of the initiative," he said. In his remark, Director, FCT Archives and History Bureau, Mr. Abubakar Yabo, said the celebration is to sensitise the public on the functions of the archives bureau from inception to date. The director, who was represented by Charles Nnolim, said the archive was committed to collating and managing documents for posterity. Also speaking, a university don, Dr Abiola Abioye, advocated for adequate funding, proper appreciation of archives and archival materials and support for archives in the country.
