Wike calls out FCDA officials for making him look bad, saying, “It’s a shame.”
The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Nyesom Wike, on Monday slammed officials of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) for their unprofessional conduct.
The former Rivers governor, who spoke angrily during the flag-off ceremony of the rehabilitation of existing roads in the territory, said he was embarrassed by the FCDA officials’ failure to properly arrange microphones at the event.
According to Wike, such attitudes were responsible for the bad state of the nation’s capital, saying if they cannot properly “arrange ordinary microphones, how will FCT work”?
The minister sternly warned those concerned that such “embarrassment” should not occur during his public function henceforth.
He said, “Let me express my displeasure to FCDA; it is unfortunate, and that is why FCT is where it is. If you have an ordinary microphone, you cannot arrange it to work? How will FCT work?
“It is a shame that this is where we are at this level, and let me warn all those who are concerned: this will be the last time I will appear in a public function, and I get this embarrassment. If you don’t want to work, you leave.”
