Minister Wike's Senate Presentation: Addressing Security Concerns in Abuja.

Nyesom Wike, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, has announced plans to take action against abandoned, incomplete buildings in Abuja, which he described as "hideouts for criminals." During his appearance before the Senate Committee on Appropriations on November 1, Wike emphasized the need to address the security challenges associated with such structures.


Wike expressed confidence that the situation would improve significantly in Abuja with the introduction of metro buses. He asserted that these abandoned buildings have become prime locations for criminal activities, and once the metro bus system is operational, issues like "one-chance" incidents would be a thing of the past.

The minister, who previously served two terms as the governor of Rivers State, has recently been in the spotlight due to reported conflicts with his successor, Governor Siminalayi Fubara. This situation escalated with the issuance of an impeachment notice following the suspension of the majority leader in the State House of Assembly, who was reportedly aligned with the governor.
