“We are not unaware of challenges confronting justices of this honourable court in the FCT, especially the problem associated with their accommodation. We will look closely at this matter to see how it can be best mitigated.”

He reiterated that his administration at the FCT would be committed to implementing reforms that would restore the good days of the federal capital that Nigerians would be proud of.
The former governor of Rivers State then called for the support of the judiciary in his visionary journey to rejuvenate the FCT.
Wike said his commitment to providing the necessary support for the judiciary was due to the recognition that the third tier of government is important to preserving justice, citizens’ rights protection and the well-being of Nigerian society.

PDP defends Wike, faults Atiku’s spokesman for calling FCT minister NURTW member
Legit.ng earlier reported that the PDP in Rivers State has kicked against the comment made by Daniel Bwala, the spokesperson of Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign council in the 2023 election.
Bwala was alleged in a video to have said Nyesom Wike, the minister of the FCT, was working with the NURTW when Atiku and others were forming the PDP.
But Kingsley Chuku, the PDP legal adviser in Rivers, cautioned Bwala against advertising wrong information, adding that the former governor was a well-known lawyer in Port Harcourt before joining politics.
