2 mins read

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s recent call for action on the Abuja metro line took on a unique angle as he directly addressed the newly appointed minister in charge of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

Speaking at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Conference on Sunday, President Tinubu made his plea for the completion of the metro project while emphasizing its importance in improving citizens’ lives in the Nigerian capital.

In a moment that captured attention, Tinubu turned to Wike and stated, “The Landlord of Abuja, I want to ride on your Metro Line. If I ask for free land, don’t give me just ensure you deliver.” This candid and straightforward approach showcased the urgency of the matter and the president’s desire to see tangible progress.

The Abuja metro line project, a long-standing endeavor, carries the potential to address issues such as traffic congestion, pollution, and transportation efficiency in the nation’s capital.

Given Wike’s history of successful infrastructural projects during his time as the governor of Rivers State, President Tinubu’s direct address seems to be a recognition of Wike’s expertise and influence in this realm.

Notably dubbed ‘Mr. Projects’ by former vice president Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Wike’s reputation precedes him as a leader who has demonstrated commitment to development initiatives.

This reputation likely played a role in Tinubu’s decision to single out Wike and make a public plea for progress on the Abuja metro line.

The setting of the NBA conference provided an apt platform for President Tinubu’s address. As legal professionals gathered to discuss pertinent issues, Tinubu’s call for infrastructural development aligned seamlessly with the broader national interest.
