This is a list of ministers of the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria. The Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Nigeria was formed in 1976 from parts of former Nasarawa, Niger, and Kogi States. It is important to note here that none of the ministers is an indigenous peraon of the FCT. Since inception the indigenous people of FCT have been denied the position of the minister not even the minister of state and this calls for concern. The people should at least be given the Minister of state for FCT of not the senior minister.<Chigudu Theophilus Tanko>
