Mr Wike recounted the opposition faced during the policy implementation and emphasized President Tinubu’s stance on the establishment of the commission.

He further underscored the importance of geographical representation, saying the six geopolitical zones in the country must be represented in the appointments in line with the Federal Character Principle.

Mr Wike cautioned against any act of sabotage within the FCT Administration and stressed the need for full support from directors to achieve the president’s mandate. “I worry that Mr President cannot be doing this and some of us are sabotaging the efforts of the Administration. If what you have been looking for, for years, somebody comes on board to say this thing has been difficult, any obstacle, I’m going to remove it. This thing must be implemented, it requires that you too on your part must do everything necessary for the person to succeed and it takes commitment, it takes hard work.
