FCT Minister, Wike Rejects Congratulatory Billboards, Adverts In Abuja

Minister for FCT Nyesom Wike

The minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has rejected congratulatory adverts and billboards erected by his well-wishers in the nation’s capital.

He therefore asked his admirers to stop placing congratulatory billboards to celebrate his appointment.

The Director of Press, Office of the Minister, Mr Anthony Ogunleye, stated this in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday.

The statement read in part: “The attention of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has been drawn to lamp post billboards, full-scale billboards, and other adverts congratulating him on his appointment as minister.

“While the minister deeply appreciates the warm wishes and support of the citizens, he kindly, but strongly requests that such billboards and advertisements be discontinued forthwith.

“The minister acknowledges the overwhelming goodwill from the residents of the FCT and beyond understands the sentiment behind these congratulatory displays and is genuinely touched by the show of support”.

“However, in the spirit of public service and commitment to his responsibilities, the minister wishes to focus his full attention on assisting President Bola Tinubu in realising his vision and renewed hope agenda for Nigeria”.

“Wike sincerely hopes that the public will understand his perspective and continue to extend their support and cooperation.

“He looks forward to working hand in hand with all stakeholders to build a stronger, more prosperous, and united FCT and Nigeria”, the statement further read.
