Tinubu: Wike, one of my best appointees

President Bola Tinubu has described the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, as one of his best cabinet members.

“Wike is one of the best appointments ever made in the history of the current democratic dispensation,” Tinubu said during the inauguration of the Inner Southern Expressway (ISEX) and the Outer Southern Expressway (OSEX), known as the first phase of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Expressway, in Abuja on Wednesday, June 5, 2024.

The president, who was represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima, also described Wike as “a force of human nature”, adding: “Love him, hate him, but you can’t ignore him because at every point in time he is redefining the meaning and concepts of modern leadership.”

President Tinubu commended Wike and his team for their dedication and hard work in delivering many projects, including the expressway in less than one year.

Tinubu reiterated the commitment of his administration to engendering progress and prosperity, saying the extension of the ISEX represented more than a road but symbolised connectivity, accessibility, and opportunity.

He added: “It also signifies our unwavering determination to bridge the gap between the urban and rural areas in ensuring that development was not confined to city centres but reaches every corner of our great nation.

“We celebrate not just the completion of yet another road project by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) but also the commitment of our administration to endangering progress and prosperity.

“Today’s commission is the fourth completed roads that we proudly unveiled in the Federal Capital Territory, all executed in less than one year.

“These roads are tangible proves of our administration vision for modern, prosperous and inclusive Federal Capital Territory.”

Tinubu assured that in the coming months and years, his administration would continue to prioritise infrastructure development as a cornerstone of the ‘Renewed Hope Agenda’.

“We remain committed on delivering on our promises, empowering our people and building a nation that we can all be proud of,” the president said.
