New FCT Minister Denies Purchasing N300m Bulletproof SUV

New Federal Capital Territory FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, has denied a social media report that he acquired a N300 Million Armoured Lexus LX600, just a day after he was sworn in by President Bola Tinubu.

Wike, Immediate past governor of Rivers, stated this while speaking after a tour of the Abuja Light Rail on Wednesday, 23 August, 2023.

The FCT minister, who described the social media report as tissues of lies, challenged newsmen to inspect his vehicle and confirm whether it was the bulletproof variant or otherwise.

 “We are now going to the office to have a direct report from each of the departments, but I have seen what is going on in the social media, how you (FCTA Permanent Secretary) bought a bulletproof car of N300 Million Naira that I am using.

“So I want you people to go hit your hand there (on the car) and see whether it is a treated car. With all due respect, people should be careful not to destroy other people.

“When I came, the Permanent Secretary said they have a car for us, and the car we use is this. I have never approved any car to be bought and I have not used an official bullet-proof car. Whether I have cars as governor? Yes, as a governor, what do you expect I should have? But, I am not using bulletproof cars as FCT Minister, so we should report the right thing, and not destroy ourselves. I want you to take a look at where you have the flag, and see whether it is a bullet-proof car”, he declared.

The newsmen present confirmed that the vehicle was not bulletproof.
