Resign Now - FCT Indigenes Tell Wike, Protest At The National Assembly by fesadebgroup: 1:50pm On Dec 06, 2023
Thousands Of FCT Indigenes Storm National Assembly, Demand Wike's Resignation As Minister Over Alleged Land Racketeering

A coalition of over 10,000 indigenes of the Federal Capital Territory and civil society groups, on Wednesday, held a massive protest calling for the resignation of Nyesom Wike as Minister of the capital city.

The protesters, who stormed the National Assembly complex, under the aegis of the Network of Civil Societies for Economic Sustainability said Wike is incompetent and lacks vision for the FCT

The crowd have never been seen in the history of protests in FCT before.

In his address, the group's convener Adamu Kabir Matazu described the former Rivers State governor as callous, indecorous, uncouth, greedy, and selfish.

"Today, we stand united to express our concern over the direction of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) under the watch of Nyesom Wike. It's abysmal and disturbing for the FCT to become an epicenter of controversy due to the misguided actions of Wike, which not only undermine President Tinubu's renewed hope agenda but also cast a shadow on the credibility of the federal government," he said. 

"We are here today to demand the immediate resignation from office or sack of Nyesom Wike as Minister of the FCT due to his deficiency in character required of his office and in a government that promises to renew the Hope of Nigerians. A government that wishes to give hope to its citizens must be run by men who possess quality character and not persons like Wike who are callous, indecorous, uncouth, greedy, selfish, and given to undue troublemaking and miscreants. 

"Wike has remained a difficult person to the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and should be gotten rid of. While the Federal Government has been calm and calculated in its reforms and its explanations to citizens on the rationale behind the policies of government, Wike has been insensitive; insulting the collective sensibilities of residents of the Federal Capital and Nigerians in general. His actions are avoidably controversial and hurting and his diction has been foul, combative, and condescending as if he is a deliberate punishment sent to the Federal Capital Territory by President Tinubu.

"Wike's alleged penchant for land grabbing and cronyism has begun to emerge as some of the land reforms are suspected to be targeted at dispossessing Nigerians of their properties and re-acquiring them through cronies. There is tension in the FCT under the brutal and sometimes criminal "Wike is Coming" menace. 

"His recent clash with the governor of Rivers isn't just a mere disagreement but a display of dirty politics that has no place in a civilized society. His preoccupation with personal vendetta has diverted his attention from his primary responsibility, neglecting the critical objectives set by the federal government for the FCT

"His high-handedness in land policies, the revocation of lands, perceived animosity towards a particular section of the country, and the alarming manner in which lands are allocated, reeks of high-level corruption. His actions do not align with the government's agenda for reforms and development in the FCT. Mr. Wike's tactics, reminiscent of an emperor which he exhibited during his tenure as governor of Rivers State are detrimental to the progress and growth we seek for our FCT and the nation at large.

"Furthermore, Wike's disregard for decorum in media address and his reckless remarks without considering their implications on the administration are not befitting of a public office holder. His lack of accountability and administration failures are evident, and his actions threaten to cause irreparable harm to the administration's credibility."

The Network of Civil Society for Economic Sustainability, therefore, called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to take decisive action to contain the excesses of Wike. 

The statement added: "It is in the best interest of our nation that Mr. Wike's disruptive tendencies are addressed promptly to safeguard the integrity of this administration and ensure that the objectives set for the FCT are pursued diligently and without distractions.

"Let us stand together in this call for accountability and responsible governance. Our nation deserves leaders who prioritize the public interest over personal agendas. Thank you."

Wike eyes go soon clear.. This is not Rivers state where he reigned as emperor and had political jobbers and ass-kissers all over the place.

He needs to relax, he is only the FCT Minister and not the Governor of Abuja.

He needs to be sensitive to the yearnings of the common people of Abuja, not patronizing Judges and renovating VP residence for 15 Billion.

Wike will be demystified, he will be humbled.

I personally do not like the man but I must confess Wike is the only FCT minister after Elrufai that is bringing infrastructural development to Abuja. All of a sudden all the abandoned construction sites have come back to life.

If you know Wike very well, you will understand he is actually what they described there.. A time is coming when he will even turn against Tinubu..

Not one tangible reason given!

Mtchew.

If you resided in Abuja during the administration of El Rufai you'd understand the sort of minister the FCT needs. And Wike is doing well albeit just 6 months in office.

No room for lawlessness anymore!!!


The protest at the National Assembly was against the bombing of civilians in Kaduna.

The North is still angry that their usual playground. The FCT minister has been taken away from them as if minister of the FCT is their birth right,they are now sponsoring paid and yeye protesters.

That is why I support the G5 asking for power shift to the south. Wike will do his 4 years there and there is nothing anybody can do except Tinubu wants his head to buuru. undecided

P.S. This is not an endorsement of Wike or Tinubu himself. I do not like him as a person or leader. But the fact that someone from the south is put in charge of the FCT is cool with me
