Abuja: “Stay at Home, Don’t Come to City,” Wike Urges Council Chairmen


Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has advised area council chairmen in the nation’s capital to focus on developing their respective communities instead of frequently visiting the city.

Wike delivered this message during the inauguration of an 11-kilometre rural road construction project connecting Sukuku Ebo and Yangoji communities in the Kwali Area Council.

Wike emphasised the importance of staying in their domains, stating, “Continue to stay at home. Don’t come to the city regularly. Stay there and do the work. My own is to support you.

“If you don’t do well for rural communities, you will create problems for the city,” he added.

The Minister expressed the FCT Administration’s commitment to collaborate with area council chairmen to drive development in rural areas.

Wike assured that all abandoned projects in Abaji and other area councils would be completed, signalling an end to the era of neglecting such initiatives.

“We are touching rural areas to renew their hope because they have suffered years of abandonment.

“This is your time to benefit. If we don’t take care of rural areas, then we have failed as a government,” Wike declared.
