There Are Those Who Will Never Be Happy In Their Lives – Wike Fires Back At Critics

FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike has fired back at those saying that there is no improvement in the nation’s capital since he assumed office.

The Minister described those who refused to acknowledge the positive changes taking place in the nation’s capital as sadists.

Speaking during an inspection of various road projects across the FCT on Wednesday, Wike defended the government’s ongoing efforts to address infrastructure challenges in the nation’s capital.

The Minister inspected ongoing road projects at Guzape Lot 2, handled by Gilmor Construction, the Goodluck Jonathan Expressway project by Salini Nigeria Limited, road resurfacing projects in Asokoro by Julius Berger, and infrastructure developments in the Diplomatic Area.

“I don’t know about criminals. I have always told you that there are those who will never be happy in their lives. Anybody who says that there are no improvements in terms of streetlights is a sadist. We are trying to make some repairs of those that have been vandalised, which is not easy,” said Wike.

Responding to further questions about streetlight vandalism and public safety concerns, the Minister acknowledged the challenges of repairing vandalized infrastructure but assured the public that efforts are ongoing to address these issues.

He dismissed accusations of rising criminality, suggesting that those making such claims might be complicit themselves.

“Like when you heard Salini say here that they’ve tested it, but (the lights) have not been on because they are waiting for commissioning. So maybe this is part of the areas that they think that is dark.

“When they say criminals, I think those who are saying so are part of the criminals themselves. We should be able to commend government when there are improvements. I didn’t say here that we are going to concentrate only on roads.

“We are saying we are going to dwell on the health sector, the education sector, even agriculture. These people know, it’s just that some Nigerians find it difficult to accept the reality on ground that things have changed”, he added.
