FCT Minister Wike Orders Associates To Stop Congratulatory Billboards In His Honour

Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has asked well-wishers to stop erecting congratulatory billboards in his honour across Abuja.

Wike gave this order in a statement on Sunday, August 27, through the director of press, Office of the Minister, Anthony Ogunleye.

Although Wike expressed his appreciation for such gestures and acknowledged what he described as the overwhelming goodwill of FCT residents, the minister asked that advertisements in his name should stop immediately.

Ogunleye in the statement noted that Wike is focused more on assisting the new administration, contributing to the development and growth of the FCT and the well-being of residents and the nation as a whole.

The statement read in part:

“The attention of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has been drawn to lamp post billboards, full-scale billboards and other adverts congratulating him on his appointment as minister.

“While the minister deeply appreciates the warm wishes and support of the citizens, he kindly, but strongly requests that such billboards and advertisements be discontinued forthwith.

“The minister acknowledges the overwhelming goodwill from the residents of the FCT and beyond.

“He understands the sentiment behind these congratulatory displays and is genuinely touched by the show of support.

“However, in the spirit of public service and commitment to his responsibilities, the minister wishes to focus his full attention on assisting President Bola Tinubu in realising his vision and renewed hope agenda for Nigeria.

“Wike sincerely hopes that the public will understand his perspective and continue to extend their support and cooperation.

“He looks forward to working hand in hand with all stakeholders to build a stronger, more prosperous, and united FCT and Nigeria.”
