Nyesom Wike, minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), says the action of those protesting the sacking of over 21 directors and heads of government-owned companies would amount to a total waste of time and energy.

Wike said no sentiments or emotion would be considered in his efforts to do the right thing in the nation’s capital.

The media reported the viral video of the protesting staff of the Abuja Urban Mass Transport Company AUMTCO following the sack of the company’s managing director, Najeeb Abdulsalam, a few days ago.

The minister speaking with reporters in Abuja said “That is why when I watch people on video, crying that somebody has been removed and that he has been doing well, the question is if you have been doing well, where are the buses?”

“No sentiment, no emotions will be considered when we are doing what is right. We will do the right thing in the interest of the people.

“If you like, carry 20 people, put a video, and cry as much as you want to cry, it will not bother us. What bothered us was the reality on the ground.

“You are not a civil servant where you will say nobody is supposed to retire me because I am not up to the age of retirement.

“Even as a minister, I can be relieved of my position now. You don’t need to cry; some other people will come and all we pray for is, let us get the best.”
