Confusion As Wike Not Recognised As FCT Minister
Former Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, is yet to be recognised as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, by the Federal Capital Development Authority FCDA on its official website, https://www.fcda.gov.ng/.
This is despite the Ikwere-born politician being inaugurated as the 18th FCT minister on August 16, 2023.
Wike, alongside the Minister of State, Mariya Mahmud, officially assumed office on August 21, ready to steer the ship of the Federal Capital Territory.
However, a routine check of the FCDA website, indicates that the website still prominently featured the picture and details of Mohammed Bello as the FCT Minister.
The delay in recognising Wike on the website has fueled speculation over whether it reflects a bureaucratic oversight, an internal dispute, or perhaps a deeper issue surrounding Wike’s appointment.
Critics have pointed out that such an omission could potentially impact the day-to-day operations and communication within the FCT. Adding a layer of intrigue to the situation, Wike yesterday expressed his displeasure with the staff of FCTA.
