President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said the appointment of Nyesom Wike as the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is one of the best of his administration. 

Tinubu, represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima, spoke on Wednesday in Abuja during the commissioning of the extension of the Inner Southern Expressway (ISEX) and the Outer Southern Expressway (OSEX) to the Southern Parkway.

“As we celebrate this achievement, it is crucial once again to acknowledge the concerted efforts of the FCT Minister, Chief Barrister Ezenwo Nyesom Wike and his team, and all stakeholders involved, including private sector partners,” the President said..

“As I said the last time, Wike is a force of human nature. Love him, hate him, but you cannot ignore him because at every point in time, he is striving to redefine the meaning and concept of leadership. Wike is one of the best appointments ever made in the history of the current democratic dispensation in this country.”

Tinubu said, “all my brothers and sisters who opposed his (Wike’s) appointment are now hailing him”.

“He is an exemplary leader, worthy of emulation by us all. He is a very mercurial partner; unfortunately, leadership has turned down that tempo.

“The whole political space is populated by careful friends. But now he has stopped dancing, he has stopped singing, but he is still performing.”

Wike, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the only member of the opposition party who is serving in the Renewed Hope Administration of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
