The Minister of Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCT), Nyesom Wike has described the hardship currently being experienced by most Nigerians as “temporary”.
Wike expressed optimism that the economic policies of the Bola Tinubu administration would soon yield positive results.
“To change the economy is not by mouth. So, many things will go wrong, but in going wrong, it will get right. The wrong is the effect on you temporarily,” he said.
The minister spoke during the commencement of the resurfacing of 189 roads in the Maitama District, Garki and Utako in the FCT yesterday.
Wike, who also called for prayers for President Bola Tinubu, advised Nigerians not to dwell on the negatives of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration
He said: “What the President is doing today will yield positive results soon. We may be having some inconveniences, we agree.
“I know that whatever position or whatever policies you see today coming out is not intended to make anybody suffer.
“We need to pray to make sure there is good health for Mr. President, for the wisdom, the strength for him to pilot the affairs of this country.
“It will not be good for us only to talk about the bad. We should also talk about the good side.”
Wike warned that he would not hesitate to revoke the contract of any contractor that fails to deliver.
Recall that Wike, had vowed to further ensure that criminals operating do not have rest in the nation’s capital.
He made this vow following the incessant kidnapping in Abuja.
Wike made the vow on Friday while inaugurating an emergency construction and rehabilitation of the nine-kilometre Paikon Kore – Ibwa Road, in Gwagwalada Area Council of the FCT to promote rural development.
Wike said the project was part of 30-kilometre roads that would be constructed across the six area councils of the territory.
