Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Barrister Nyesom Wike, has said that he will not be contesting against President Bola Tinubu in the 2027 presidential election.
Expressing his commitment to the success of Tinubu’s administration during an interview on Friday, November 24, Wike stated that having worked for the emergence of Tinubu as president, and having been made minister of FCT, nothing would make him contest against the president in 2027.
“Tinubu made me the FCT minister and I won’t allow anybody to crumble our political structure. No!
“Tinubu made me minister, poeple don’t understand, I have character. What will happen in 2027? I stood and I said I’m not going to support injustice. I was threatened and some poeple said they will do me this and that. They tried many options including using major Generals.”
