The deployment of the immediate-past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, to the Ministry of Federal Capital Territory (MFCT) as Minister-designate was one of the best decisions made by President Bola Tinubu.
This was disclosed by a young politician from Jigawa State, Umar Faringado Kazaure, in a statement personally signed by him in Abuja on Thursday.
President Tinubu had on Wednesday assigned portfolios to the 45 Ministers-designate cleared by the Senate penultimate Monday.
Faringado said, given Wike’s nationalist posture and track record in Rivers State, he will make FCT a true rallying point of unity for all Nigerians in the interest of national cohesion and development.
“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of Chief Nyesom Wike as FCT Minister is one of the best decisions he has made so far. Because Nigerians know Chief Nyesom Wike as a nationalist and a performer given his record of service in Rivers State, where he served as governor for eight years.
“He will definitely engender national unity and development with his new role and turn the Federal Capital Territory to an architectural masterpiece. President Bola Tinubu is lucky to have Chief Nyesom Wike on board,” Faringado stated.
He congratulated the former governor even as he called on him to replicate his people-oriented projects as seen in Rivers State in the nation’s capital of Abuja.
