FCT natives condemn attack on Wike by unrecognised group

By Deborah Onyofufeke, Abuja

The indigenous people of Federal Capital Territory FCT under the auspices of Abuja Original Inhabitant Youth Empowerment Organization AOIYEO have made known their disapproval of persons hiding under the name of Indigenous group to attack Barrister Wike Nyesom, the FCT Minister on his decision to boost city’s internally generated revenue of Administration.

This was contained in a release personally signed by the president of the organization, Commandant Isaac David, who out rightly condemned this act disassociating the indigenes from the publication which he explained portends to create disaffection between the minister and the people of Abuja.

According to him, “We are sending warnings to these people to desist from this kind of hide and seek in the name of natives, because indigenous people know how to pursue its matters without insulting or condemning the authority, besides the issue of massive revenue generations embarked upon by the Minister to develop the city and its environs has never been our problem, so we are totally against any group impersonating the Indigenous to vent their angers against the minister.”

He continued that, FCT natives are very interested in the peace and development of the city and its environs, so we are fully in support of any conscious moves to increase the revenue generation of the city through land allocation among others because the steps taken so far have shown that the minister knows the best way to address the incessant problem of paucity of fund for infrastructural development.

“Any government who can not inwardly look for solutions around the system to advance the development can not be seen as a serious one”.

Therefore, the Indigenous people of Abuja would be happy if developers in the city would support and cooperate with the minister as this would put general interest over personal interest

He further stated that the administration needs fund to end the jinx of abandoned projects in FCT, for the newly created civil service commission to take off, welfare of the staff and many developmental projects. “In fact the decision to direct all the council chairmen to commence the construction of 5 kilometres roads in each of the six area councils of the city can not be only made with mouth without financial backings, so the drive to generate more funds for speedy development was never out of good step.”

Isaac therefore advised the minister to ignore the rabble-rouser and fictitious set of people who might be hiding under the name of Indigenous group to attack him on his developmental policies.

“AOIYEO would like to advise the Minister to always ignore these people who are fond of disguising as FCT natives or concerned citizens of the city in their bid to discredit the good work he has started in Abuja because we the original inhabitants are presently happy with all his moves to sanitize the administration of FCT and this is reason we are not happy with the people who are using our name to castigate the minister.”

Meanwhile, Isaac called the attentions of all security agents to go after these elements who derive joy in the impersonation of the good people of FCT to attack the minister in such a way to create disaffection between the minister and the indigenous people of Abuja.

“ We have been reliably gathered that these enemies of progress want to cause suspicion and hatred between FCT people and the administration in furtherance of their selfish interests, therefore, we want security agents to commence their investigation to unravel these wicked souls who are out to safeguard their personal interests over general interests.”

“It may also interest the minister to know that the name of the convener of the fictitious group was never known in the Indigenous name of FCT, so Wike should know that it is the work of the enemy of FCT.” Isaac said

Recall that one convener of a fictitious group, com¬rade Daniel Okwa, queried the exemption of the FCT from the Treasury Single Account policy of the Federal Government and also condemned the N5 m pay¬ment for issuance of Certificate of Occupancy for residents.
