On Friday, Nyesom Wike, minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), gave 10 vehicles to third-class chiefs in the nation’s capital, fulfilling a pledge he made to promote the well-being of traditional leaders.
The NAN states that the third-ranking chiefs came from the following regions: Gomani, Yaba, Bwari, Pai, Garki, Jiwa, Wako, Rubochi, Gwagwalada, and Zuba.
Wike stated to the traditional rulers in Abuja that the government was attempting to make it easier for them to get around by providing them with these Nissan Semi SUVs.
Mobility is essential to that. It seems unlikely that conventional leaders will be using taxis or the tube. That can’t stand.
President Bola Tinubu has issued an order prohibiting the continuation of such behaviour. He has urged that we make it as easy as possible for you to complete this task,” Wike stated.
He emphasised that traditional rulers, like everyone else, had a responsibility to ensure the safety of their people in accordance with President Tinubu’s reinvigorated agenda.
You know the people in your towns better than anyone else, and as a result, you’ll be able to spot those who are pretending to be locals.
We believe that in order to win the war against insecurity, we need to work together as partners, because no agency can do its job without the backing of traditional rulers.
So, we’re handing over 10 vehicles to you today to aid the government’s efforts to combat insecurity in your area. You can count on us to collaborate.
Because “everybody is important” in the fight against insecurity, “if we don’t work together, we will not achieve results,” Wike stated.
