I Won’t Be Distracted – FCT Minister, Wike Reacts To Protests Calling For His Resignation


Nyesom Wike

FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike has reacted to the protests at the National Assembly by Abuja residents and civil society groups, calling for his immediate resignation.

The Minister in his reaction on Thursday said he is not distracted because not everybody will agree with the policies of the government but actions must be taken in the interest of the people.

Recall that on Wednesday, there was a protest at the National Assembly complex, demanding the resignation of Wike.

The protesters criticized Wike’s leadership, labelling it as incompetent and lacking vision for the development of the Federal Capital Territory.

Adamu Kabir Matazu, speaking on behalf of the protesters and representing the Network of Civil Societies for Economic Sustainability, urged for an investigation into Wike’s land allocation policies in the FCT.

However, in response, the former Rivers State Governor stated that he remains unbothered by the actions of those who protested against him because he knows they were simply paid to do so.

The Minister said he won’t be distracted by such things as he remains focused on delivering the mandate of President Bola Tinubu to the people of the FCT.

Speaking during the flag-off of remedial work on Asokoro, Wuse roads, Wike said: “Somebody told me that some people were carrying placards.

Franky speaking, I don’t even have time to see all that. I don’t want to be distracted. I want to be focused to deliver on the mandate given to us by Mr President.”
