Apologise to Wike now,  APC forum tells northern leaders  

The North Central All Progressives Congress (APC) Forum, Tuesday, asked all the northerners, especially the leaders who vehemently opposed the appointment of Nyesom Wike as Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to apologise to him.

The apology, according to the forum, became necessary since Wike has proven his critics wrong as a performer and achiever.

While giving the advice in a statement made available to Blueprint in Abuja, the forum’s chairman, Alhaji Saleh Mandung Zazzaga, said the FCT minister, within the period he assumed office, has turned Abuja around through the good work being done.

He said reports reaching the forum indicated that even those who vehemently opposed Wike’s appointment have now come to terms that the minister is actually performing and repositioning the city in terms of road construction, infrastructural development and security beef-up.

“So, if we all agree now that Wike is currently performing and doing well as the FCT minister, the most honourable thing to do is to openly acknowledge it.

“And let all those who vehemently opposed his appointment as the FCT minister because he is not from the North, come out openly and apologise to him.

“The FCT minister must not be from the North, as it is not stated in the Nigerian constitution, and even if anyone should complain, it is we from the North Central under which Abuja falls. 

“And as leaders of the ruling party (APC) from the North Central, we are glad and confident to say that Wike is doing creditably well, even much more than our northern brothers who have held the position before now.

“We are therefore thanking President Bola Tinubu for making this incredible choice; by appointing Wike as the FCT minister.”
