In a surprising twist, newly inaugurated Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike, has disclosed that PDP governors had sent a list of 10 ministerial nominees to Tinubu for consideration along with the other governors of the 36 states, yesterday.

Wike’s stance on impartiality towards municipal planning laws was unwavering, even suggesting that the PDP national secretariat could be subject to demolition if found non-compliant.

Amid speculations about his party affiliation and flag, Wike boldly declared, “Bring the PDP flag, I will fly it, bring the Labour Party flag, I will fly it.” Focusing on the broader picture, he emphasized, “The FCT is in this state and you think the people are bothered about the party flag I fly?”
