Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has issued a strong warning to an unnamed lawmaker who criticized his achievements during the inauguration of the Phase I construction of the Mabushi Bus Terminal in Abuja.

Wike expressed displeasure over statements he heard on Arise TV, where the legislator allegedly denounced the progress made in the FCT, particularly highlighting deficiencies in schools and healthcare facilities.

Addressing the lawmaker directly, Wike challenged their legislative record, questioning the number of bills sponsored to improve education and health sectors.

He defiantly stated that if the lawmaker contested in Abuja in 2027, they would not succeed, emphasizing that past outcomes would not repeat.

Stating his authority as FCT Minister, Wike declared his territory and intentions without fear.

Wike further advised the lawmaker to admit when lacking knowledge, offering education instead of criticism.

He defended achievements under his tenure, acknowledging praise while dismissing unwarranted anger.

Also, Senator Ireti Kingibe of the LP-FCT echoed concerns on Arise TV about marginalization in FCT governance, citing issues with water access, road construction priorities, and unmet community needs in healthcare, education, and security.
