FCT, Abuja – Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), says he decided to work with President Bola Tinubu because of his proven capacity and unwavering political will.
The former governor of Rivers state said this at a press conference held in Abuja on Friday, October 13, TheCable reported.
Wike is one of the prominent chieftains of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) appointed by President Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Leadership is one of Nigeria’s problems, says Wike
Wike further said one of the glaring issues plaguing Nigeria is the leadership problem.
Why we implemented the FCT Civil Service Commission – Wike
Upon assuming office as FCT minister, Wike said he found that a law establishing a civil service commission for the Federal Capital Territory had been passed but remained unimplemented.
Taking a proactive stance, he brought the matter to President Tinubu’s attention, who subsequently approved its implementation. He lamented the prevailing reluctance to implement crucial laws, citing the 2018 bill on the FCT civil service commission passed by the National Assembly, which was assented to by then-acting President Yemi Osinbajo. Wike also called for the full and faithful implementation of laws that have received National Assembly and presidential approval.
