The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, says he is not distracted by the ongoing crisis in Rivers State but rather he is focused on his duties as a minister.

Wike stated this while inspecting projects to be inaugurated in the nation’s capital on Friday, May 17. The former Governor of Rivers State and his successor, Governor Siminalyi Fubara, have been at loggerheads since October 2023, when some lawmakers in the state began impeachment proceedings against the governor.

While addressing journalists during the inspection tour on Abuja, Wike stated that if he had been distracted, some of the projects that he noted were ready to be inaugurated would not be possible.

“I am not distracted. If I’m distracted, you won’t see this performance here. I focus on my work. I am the Minister of the FCT, and the works are going on. So, why would I be distracted? I don’t even think about it all,” he said
