If You Like Cry As You Want – Wike To Workers Protesting MD’s Sack

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has reacted to the trending video of Abuja Urban Mass Transport Company (AUMTCO) staff lamenting over the sack of the company’s Managing Director.

Wike said in his reaction to the development said neither sentiment nor emotion will stand in his way of doing the right thing.

Recall that the MD and Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr Najeeb Abdulsalam, was among the 21 heads of parastatals, agencies, and companies of the FCT Administration that were sacked by the minister on Wednesday.

Wike said, “That is why when I watch people on video, crying that somebody has been removed and that he has been doing well, but 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 bothers us is the reality on the ground.”

He advised political appointees to always prepare to leave office at any time because someone might come and want to have a total change.

Wike added, “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.”
