The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has emphasized the efforts made by all parties in the FCT to address common issues such as poverty and insecurity.
In a video posted on YouTube by TVC, Wike asserted that President Tinubu, acting as the FCT governor, has entrusted him with delegated authority to act on his behalf. He emphasized that poverty and insecurity impact individuals irrespective of their political affiliations or social standing, urging a cohesive approach to address these issues. Wike highlighted the imperative nature of collaborative efforts in combating poverty and insecurity, commending the joint initiatives of council chairpersons and underscoring their shared dedication to shaping a more secure and prosperous FCT.
According to Wike, “Tinubu is the governor of FCT, he has merely delegated his power to us to perform on his behalf. Now let me thank all the area council, we are working together and you wouldn’t even know the party anybody belongs to. And that is what I have told them, poverty does not know the party you belong to so we must work together to fight poverty. Insecurity does not know whether you are a big man’s son or a poor man’s son so we must have to work together to fight insecurity. The council chairmen are doing that with us. ”
