Former federal lawmaker Daniel Bwala has issued a stern caution to Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), urging him not to incite disorder within the city. Bwala emphasized that Abuja is distinctly different from Port Harcourt and advised Wike to avoid actions that might lead to turmoil.
Bwala’s warning comes with a veiled threat, as he indicated that any actions taken by Wike that compromise the interests of President Bola Tinubu could result in the Minister sacrificing his position. The statement highlights the underlying tension and political intricacies within the nation’s capital
The timing of this warning is noteworthy, as it comes less than 24 hours after Nyesom Wike himself issued a strong warning to Fulani herdsmen. Wike’s warning centered around preventing the entry of their cattle into the capital city, further underlining the Minister’s proactive approach in addressing various concerns.
As the political landscape in the Federal Capital Territory continues to evolve, these warnings exchange raises questions about the interplay between regional interests, federal directives, and the maintenance of order in a city of significant national importance.
