Insecurity: Wike condemns constant travel by FCT council chairmen


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mr Nyesom Wike, has frowned at constant travels by area council chairmen in the wake of security challenges in the city.

Recall that there has been a spike in the abduction and killing of residents by bandits, especially in Kuje and Bwari area councils.

The minister on Tuesday described the constant travels as unacceptable.

He said, “This time around, we will not be happy where area council chairmen will abdicate their responsibilities and travel out.

“We have gotten reports that the council chairmen travel any time, and if anything happens, they will not call anybody’s name but the FCT minister’s.


“So, council chairmen should know that they must wake up to their responsibilities. It is not everything that happens people will say that the ministers are not taking steps.”
