The senator representing Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Ireti Kingibe, has accused the minister, Nyesom Wike of neglecting the needs of the people of the capital city.

Kingibe said that The FCT minister has only focused on infrastructural development rather than the needs of the people.

Speaking on Arise TV, the senator said FCT residents are unimpressed with Wike’s performance.

The lawmaker pointed out that Wike’s projects would not benefit residents of the FCT.

According to Kingibe: “The minister may be a great minister in a Ministry that has no people. But the unique situation of the FCT minister is that apart from infrastructure and roads, he also has to take into consideration the needs of the people in that community.

“The minister of FCT is almost acting as governor for the President. Just like people took me on when those roads were commissioned.

“That is the difference, it is just like a governor telling you he built some roads, so he doesn’t care what the needs of people are. They FCT people have needs. The people are not impressed.”

Since May 29, President Bola Tinubu has inaugurated several roads completed under the supervision of Wike across the FCT.

During the inauguration of one of the roads, Tinubu had disclosed that he was advised against appointing Wike as FCT minister.

Tinubu said Wike had been an inspiration to many people with his excellent performance in the nation’s capital.
