Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has commended President Bola Tinubu’s leadership for rekindling optimism among Nigerians during the administration’s first year at the helm.

Speaking during a ministerial sectoral briefing, Wike reflected on the accomplishments of his ministry over the same period.

As reported by African future leadership Magazine, President Tinubu’s government, led by the APC, is approaching its one-year mark in office on May 29th of this year.

Minister Wike lauded several key initiatives including the activation of the FCT service commission, the institution of the women’s secretariat within the FCT sporting a mandate secretary, and the successful detachment of the FCTA from the Treasury Single Account which significantly bolstered access to the FCT’s internal revenue streams, aiding project execution.

He cited improvements such as bolstered security through the provision of necessary equipment and vehicles, the construction and rehabilitation of roads, the revival of the Abuja light rail project, enhancement of educational facilities across the FCT, and the overall advancement of roads and essential infrastructure.

Wike additionally announced the upcoming inauguration of 120 kilometers of road across six area councils and various other key projects slated for commissioning on May 27th.

In a contrasting scenario, Edwin Clark, leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), has directed fresh criticism toward Minister Wike, attributing to him a disruptive influence over Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State.

Clark bemoaned Wike’s alleged “naked dance” in public discourse, insinuating an overwhelming grip on both the PDP and APC within the state. This denouncement came to light through a letter dated May 20, 2024, aimed at both political party chairpersons.
