The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Nyesom Wike has explained why he accepted to work as a Minister under the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

Wike noted that President Tinubu has the capacity and political will to direct affairs of the country.

Wike, who speaking at a briefing on Friday, said leadership is one of the problems confronting Nigeria.

According to him: “One of the reasons I accepted to work with Mr. President is because [of] capacity and the political will to do those things that people are afraid of doing.

“One of the problems in this country is leadership, so many people don’t want to take action. There is no action that you take that everybody will be [happy]”

The minister said upon assuming office, he discovered that a law establishing a civil service commission for the FCT had been enacted but remained unimplemented.

He then brought this to Tinubu’s attention, and Tinubu approved its initiation.

“In 2018, the national assembly passed a bill into law which was assented by the former Vice-President Osinbajo when he was acting as the president. [The law says] FCT should have a civil service commission. Everybody has been running away.

“Nobody wants to [implement it]. Nobody has the political will to implement it. Everybody is saying ‘if I’m the head of service, it will reduce my power’. No. It is about the institution. The president will come and go.

“The minister will come and go, so also the head of service will come and go. If the national assembly passes a bill into law which is assented by Mr President, what is wrong in implementing that law?”
