Wike is my advisor, not just a minister, according to Tinubu

Former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike is not only the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, but also his adviser and a fan, according to President Bola Tinubu.

On Thursday, September 14, 2023, the President hosted a powerful 62-member delegation to the Presidential Villa in Abuja that included leaders of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the President’s Special Advisor on Media and Publicity, said this in a statement.

Due to their immense capacity and resource wealth, Tinubu stated during the discussion that neither Nigeria nor Rivers State had any business being connected with poverty, insecurity, or underdevelopment.

“Being poor is not how we were intended to live. We’ll change the tide! In the midst of this storm, there is a calm and serene location for us. We’ll track it down!

“We are not slackers. We have a lot of resources. We simply need to look out for one another and act as decent neighbours. I don’t make excuses; I’m the president. I’ll put in a lot of effort for our country with a purpose, a commitment, and a dedication to generating prosperity for all Nigerians. We don’t deserve to be in need! We won’t look back; instead, we’ll go forward quickly, Tinubu declared.

The East-West Road’s Eleme Junction-Onne axis, which connects the Port Harcourt Refinery, was specifically mentioned by the Rivers stakeholders as a cause for concern. The President also assured them that he had heard their pleas.

Wike, who is a trusted advisor to Tinubu, will follow up on the situation to ensure fast action, he continued.

Not only is the Honourable Minister Wike the Minister of the FCT, but he is also a friend and admirer of mine. He has made a strong start, and the State should support him, the President said.

The President remarked, “I am the Captain and Chief Salesman of the country. I advise the younger generation to be more patient with the procedures of government. We need to quickly change the trend and take advantage of the opportunities. The people of our nation have high hopes for us. I promise to put in a lot of effort, and I ask God to guide me in the correct direction so that I won’t let Nigerians down.
