I chose to be FCT Minister because Tinubu feels Nigerians’ pains, will deliver – Wike


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has said he chose to be a minister because he believed President Bola Ahmed Tinubu would deliver on his promises to Nigerians.


He spoke at the flag-off of the rehabilitation of roads in the Garki area of Abuja on Monday.


The minister also assured that the renewed hope was not talk because Tinubu feels the pains of Nigerians.


According to Wike: “The FCT minister of state and I are here to assure you that Tinubu’s agenda of Renewed Hope works and to let you know that the FCT is working.


“The agenda of Mr President is not just by talking but also in doing. And that is why we have come to start with flagging off a number of roads in this area.


“This is just phase one. In the next few weeks, we go to phase two. This is about road – infrastructure. So many things Mr President has promised. We are taking them one after the other.


“I have told you here if anything was not going to work, I would not be a party but because I know Mr President means well for this country, he wants the best for the country, that’s why I said I would serve in his cabinet because he has shown Nigerians that he feels their pains.”
