Wike warns STDD coordinators against negotiating with contractors 


Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has warned the Coordinator of Satellite Towns Development Department (STDD), Abdulkadir Zulkiflu, against negotiating with contractors.


Wike, who gave the warning while inaugurating the coordinator Tuesday in Abuja advised him to view the appointment as an opportunity to contribute to national development.


He advised Zulkiflu to effectively coordinate activities in the satellite towns, as against sitting in the office and negotiating with contractors.


“It is your business to coordinate, liaise and brief me as the minister of the FCT.


“You are not sent there to sit in your office and begin to negotiate with contractors. If I find out, I will not hesitate to take necessary action,” he said.


The minister said the FCT Administration was working to ensure all satellite towns feel the impact of government.


He urged the coordinator to utilise the opportunity to achieve results and make the needed impact.
