2027: I have character, I won’t run against Tinubu — Wike
• Declares NIN, BVN as requirement to acquire land in Abuja

by Lawrence Bajah November 24, 2023 Reading Time: 4 mins read


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Barrister Nyesome Wike, has said he has character and will therefore not contest for president come 2027 against President Bola Tinubu.

Wike disclosed this during a media parley on Friday in Abuja, when he reiterated his commitment to the success of the Tinubu administration, even as he explained that the quest for justice was the key reason he and the G5 group of governors supported the presidential ambitions of Tinubu.

The minister noted that, having worked for the emergence of Tinubu as president and having been made minister of FCT, nothing would make him contest against the president in 2027.

00:35 / 03:03

He said, “Tinubu made me minister; people don’t understand; I have character. What will happen in 2027? I stood, and I said I’m not going to support injustice. I was threatened that they would do this and that. They tried many options, including using major generals.”

Asked for an update on his face-off with Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State, Wike, who initially said he didn’t want to talk about the matter, later declared:

“Give a man power and money; that is when you will know the person. If you have not given manpower and money, don’t say you know the person.”

“He may be your friend; he may be your son, sister, mother, or father. I don’t want to go into that,” he stated.


He lamented that Fubara could seek to destroy the structure that produced him as governor just three months after his emergence as governor.

“In three months, it is sad for someone to scatter a political structure that supports and brings you up.
You know what is painful? All these allegations make me smile.

Who and who sat with him? In all your doings, be grateful for your life, no matter the circumstance. Nobody who is a gentleman and a politician will support this kind of thing.”

On his achievements as governor of Rivers State, Wike said, “I was paying pensioner’s gratuities every month, which were not paid by my predecessor. I took River State to the level where you cannot discuss politics in Nigeria without River State.

“I was an ordinary minister when I became governor. I challenged the sitting governor, and I defeated his candidate. I worked hard.”


On the new requirements for the acquisition of land in the Federal Capital Territory, particularly the introduction of the National Identity Number (NIN) and Biometric Verification Number (BVN) to the Certificate of Occupancy (C of O), the minister said the new features were for security and revenue generation.

Wike also disclosed that existing landowners in the capital must get recertification to incorporate these new features.

“There are a lot of discrepancies, a lot of cloning of C-of-Os, so we have come up with the idea that every allottee who seeks and applies for a C-of-O must supply his NIN; this is one of the features we are going to put in the new C-of-O,” he said.

“If a corporate body doesn’t have an NIN and they have property, they must put their BVN. So many people have not registered, and this will make them go and re-register.”

Addressing the issue of existing landlords with C-of-Os, Wike stated that they would only be required to pay a nominal fee for recertification.

“For everyone who has a C-of-O, they will come for a recertification, so that we can incorporate the NIN or BVN,” he said.

“Those who had a C-of-O before don’t need to pay money again; the highest they can pay is N50,000, and corporate bodies will pay N100,000. It helps in terms of security; it also helps to improve our revenue generation.”

“There are people who own seven properties, so this will identify them so they can pay taxes.”

Wike further stated that other benefits of this initiative include accurately identifying property owners for tax purposes.

Wike is a man of his words!

A dogged and competent type!

A rare gem of the 21st century.

Why people must always respect and honor His Excellency, President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR). He is a perfectionist with discovering the best, and same time, enhancing their skills and political reputation.

Never a time has Earth witnessed a kind like Asiwaju, and its glaring he will be the first and last political demigod.

Even a new born baby won't believe this ridiculous lie. His plans are well known to all and sundry. After the ridiculous stunt he pulled in February, he can forget about Aso Rock. He will never be president, period. Even VP is completely out of the question. He should just enjoy his short vacation at the FCT ministry before he becomes a week to week visitor at the EFCC. He should familiarise himself with the blueprints of the EFCC office, because in 2028 he will be a regular visitor at their office. Dundee United.

Wike said worse things about Buhari and APC. Today he's romancing them.

Wike is like a man begging a woman for sex. He would promise her heaven and Earth only to go back on his word after releasing.

Wike my man. Our own emperor.

However aside respect, you cannot even run against Tinubu because Jagaban is bigger than any politician currently in Nigeria.

To run against him with his federal power is like running against time itself.

For a politician to have good character, is very scarce.

Nigeria is underdeveloped because of lack of good characters among the government officials.

Forget those yeye political jobbers above, they are just after their monthly crumbs. Anybody that trust you is a Con man. You said APC is a cancer but dinning and winning with cancer.
In 2027, when they bring up this your comment now, you will be denying it or saying they quoted you out of context
