Tinubu: Wike’s Appointment is Among My Administration’s Best

President Bola Tinubu has praised the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike as by far one of the best appointments of his administration.

The President said this when he inaugurated the extension of the Inner Southern Expressway (ISEX) and the Outer Southern Expressway (OSEX) to the Southern Parkway, popularly known as Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Expressway, in  Abuja, on Wednesday, June 5.

Represented by Vice-President Kashim Shettima, President Tinubu said;

‘’Today’s commissioning is the fourth completed road that we have proudly unveiled in the Federal Capital Territory, all executed in less than one year. I am filled with gratitude to His Excellency Barrister Nyesom Wike and his team for their dedication and hard work in making this road a reality. These roads are tangible proof of our administration’s vision for a modern, prosperous, and inclusive Federal Capital.

One year ago, I promised to prioritize the transformation of our infrastructure networks, recognizing them as the … through which our economy thrives and our people connect. The extension of the ISEX represents more than just a road, it symbolises connectivity, accessibility and opportunity. It signifies our unwavering determination to bridge the gap between urban and rural areas, ensuring that development is not confined to city centres, but reaches every corner of our great nation.

But let us not forget that this is just one of the many projects that have been completed across the FCT. There are still many more strategic projects in the pipeline, each designed to address the evolving needs of our Federal Capital, from upgrading existing infrastructure to initiating new projects, we are laying the ground for a more sustainable and prosperous future.

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, all stakeholders involved, including private sector partners.

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, and we have to commend Mr President for the vision, wisdom, and courage to appoint Barrister Nyesom Wike as the Minister of the FCT.

There were loud protests when his name was initially mentioned, but I believe all my brothers and sisters who opposed his appointment are now hailing him.

He’s an exemplary leader worthy of emulation by us all. 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. 

In the coming months and years, we will continue to prioritise infrastructural development as a cornerstone of our Renewed Hope Agenda. We remain committed to delivering on our promises, empowering our people, and building a nation that we can all be proud of.”
