Leadership is One Of Nigeria’s Problems ~ Wike

 

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has identified leadership as one of the problems facing Nigeria.

Wike disclosed this while noting that a law establishing a civil service commission for the FCT had been enacted but remained unimplemented.

 

The minister said he brought the law to Tinubu’s attention, and he approved its initiation.

 

Addressing a press conference on Friday, Wike said Tinubu’s political will and capacity made him agree to work in the current administration.

 

He said: “One of the problems in this country is leadership, so many people don’t want to take action. There is no action that you take that everybody will be happy.

 

“In 2018, the National Assembly passed a bill into law which was assented to by the former Vice-President Osinbajo when he was acting as the president. [The law says] FCT should have a civil service commission. Everybody has been running away.

 

“Nobody wants to [implement it]. Nobody has the political will to implement it. Everybody is saying ‘it will reduce my power’. No. It is about the institution.

 

“The minister will come and go, so also the head of service will come and go. If the National Assembly passes a bill into law which is assented to by Mr President, what is wrong in implementing that law?”
