Let Wike breathe’ – Former PDP presidential aspirant tells Nigerians



Charles Okwudili Ugwu, a former presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is calling upon Nigerians, especially those in Abuja, to rally behind Nyesom Wike in his efforts to transform the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Ugwu believes that Wike, who previously served as the governor of Rivers State, deserves all the support he can get as he steps into his role as the FCT Minister following his appointment by President Bola Tinubu. Ugwu commended Wike’s outstanding work ethic and urged everyone to help him bring his exceptional capabilities to bear in his new responsibilities.

In a statement titled “Let Wike Breathe,” Ugwu, who is a lawyer and businessman based in Abuja, praised Wike’s impressive track record of development in Rivers State. He expressed confidence that Tinubu made an excellent choice in selecting Wike to replicate his success in Rivers in the nation’s capital, Abuja.

He stressed that the city needs a man with courage and convictions like Wike to maintain its existing social infrastructure and build new ones within the shortest possible time.

“Abuja needs a man like Wike, who is courageous enough to walk his talk, to run its affairs at this point in time,”. Ugwu began.

“Wike needs the support of Nigerians to enable him focus on his work and reenact, in Abuja, his development miracle in Rivers, not the name-calling that seems to be the case now.

“FCT needs a man like Wike to maintain its decaying social infrastructure, as well as add new ones so that wherever citizens live within the FCT, they will enjoy as much quality infrastructure as in the city centre,” he added.
