Minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike. Bwala underscored that unlike Port Harcourt, where Wike held authority as a governor and enjoyed immunity, Abuja operates differently and does not afford the same latitude for unchecked actions.
Following his recent swearing-in on August 21, Wike issued a stern warning that his office would dismantle any structures that disrupt the integrity of the Abuja master plan. This pronouncement has sparked speculation among some Nigerians that Wike intends to employ his authority to confront his adversaries.
Responding to Wike’s declaration, Bwala outlined the specific responsibilities attached to Wike’s role as the Minister of the FCT. He further emphasized that Wike needs to be mindful of the distinction between Abuja and Port Harcourt.
‘’TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Hello sir, in case you need refresher course; the basic needs of the residents of the FCT are; affordable healthcare facilities; access to good education facilities, clean sports and recreational centers, affordable transport services system, efficient and workable street light in the city Centre and the suburbs; and finally, security. You came with a bullish and vendetta spirit venting fire and brimstone about demolition and revocation of titles. Abuja is not Port Harcourt. If you create chaos in the city, you will jeopardize your principal,s interests and he will be forced to sacrifice your job. You will learn humility on the job.”
