Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, is vowing to demolish houses illegally constructed within the nation’s capital, no matter whose property will be affected.
Wike gave the warning during a press briefing at the office of the FCT Minister in Garki, Abuja.
The FCT Minister said houses that had been built to distort the Abuja Masterplan, as well as built on green areas, will also be demolished, no matter who it did or did not belong to.
The Newly-appointed Minister also said he sought the permission of some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before accepting the ministerial offer from President Bola Tinubu.
The former governor, who is the only member of the opposition party in President Tinubu’s cabinet, however dismissed any possibility of defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
