Daniel Bwala, the spokesman for the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation for the 2023 presidential election, has warned the newly sworn-in Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, against his threat to demolish houses in the capital city.
SaharaReporters earlier reported that Wike on Monday during a press briefing held shortly after he was sworn in as minister alongside 44 others in Abuja following their appointments by President Bola Tinubu, threatened to demolish houses built at wrong locations in Abuja, even if the owners of such structures are ministers or ambassadors.
Wike said that houses built at illegal locations in Abuja to distort the city’s master plan will be demolished irrespective of the positions of their owners.
Reacting to the threat by the PDP chieftain and immediate past governor of Rivers State, Bwala on his X (formerly Twitter) handle, reminded Wike that Abuja is not Rivers State and that if he creates chaos in the capital city and jeopardises Tinubu’s interests with his “bullish and vendetta spirit,” the President will be forced to sack him.
According to Bwala, what residents of the FCT need are affordable healthcare facilities, access to good education facilities, clean sports and recreational centers, affordable transport services system, efficient and workable street lights in the city centre and the suburbs and security, not demolitions.
He said, “Hello sir, in case you need refresher course; the basic needs of the residents of the FCT are; affordable healthcare facilities, access to good education facilities, clean sports and recreational centers, affordable transport services system, efficient and workable street light in the city Centre and the suburbs; and finally, security.
“You came with a bullish and vendetta spirit venting fire and brimstone about demolition and revocation of titles.
“Abuja is not Port Harcourt. If you create chaos in the city, you will jeopardize your principal’s interests and he will be forced to sacrifice your job. You will learn humility on the job.”
