Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has promised to ensure that the nation’s capital gets the best of his service.
Wike said this while receiving handing over notes from Mr Adesola Olusade, Permanent Secretary, FCTA, in Abuja on Tuesday.
The minister also solicited the support of workers in the FCT Administration (FCTA) to make Abuja a befitting capital city.
He stated that his mission was to make Abuja a great city, befitting of a federal capital of the most populous nation in Africa.
“I will ensure that Abuja gets the best. You will see projects upon projects, and projects that will be completed and not abandoned.
“I am not a party to abandoned projects. I start a project when there is money as such we will look into our finances before we begin any project.
“I believe in the renewed hope of President Bola Tinubu, and Nigerians will see the difference in no distant time,” he said.
He noted that not much would be achieved without the support of the workers and residents of the FCT.
“We need your support. Nothing will work without your passion, dedication, and commitment to duty. We shall provide all the support, incentives and what you need to work well.
“What I expect is results. However, if I provide the needed resources, you must deliver or return the funds.
“From next week, we will commit ourselves to deliver on our responsibilities, but we have to work together to deliver on our mandates,” he told the workers.
Wike said that appointments into the various secretariats of the FCTA would be made after due consultations with relevant stakeholders.
He urged directors who felt they did not possess the capacity to deliver on their current tasks to seek redeployment to areas of their strength, adding that he would not take any excuses for failure.
