It’s Not Initial Gra Gra, We’ll Step On Toes” – Wike Tells Abuja Residents

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has reiterated his commitment to fix Abuja.

The minister made this known on Tuesday, during a meeting with the President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ),Chris Isiguzo.

He warned people thinking he would soon calm down to have a change of heart.

Wike stated that the FCT Minister of State have the political will to take steps against defaulters of ground rents in the territory and ensure such persons offset their outstanding liabilities.

He said:

“Abandonment of projects as far as the FCT is concerned is a thing of the past. This would not have been possible without the president exiting us from the TSA. As I speak to you, I can tell you how much we have been able to save from the IGR. There will be continuous funding of FCTA projects”.

“Some people are saying what we are doing is ‘initial gragra’, but I want to say that at the end of the day, something will happen. We will step on toes because you cannot have governance without stepping on toes. I did not make the laws but I and my colleague, the Minister of State have the political will to enforce the laws.”

“Security has improved in the FCT. Security agencies have been working around the clock to ensure that the environment remains safe. For instance, in the issue of one-chance, we set up a joint task force and they have been working round the clock, since then no incidence has been recorded.”
