An aide to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the February 25th Election, Atiku Abubakar, Daniel Bwala, has claimed that the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, is the next to face protest from workers like Minister of Works and Housing, David Umahi.
Naija News reported that Umahi, on Thursday, prevented workers who came to work late from gaining access to the ministry.
The aggrieved workers occupied the gate entrance and insisted that the Minister must come out to address them.
The protesting staff were chanting “Umahi Must Go” and lamented that they reside far away and there was no way they could come to the office early.
Umahi later apologised to the staff after they reprimanded him for his action.
Reacting to this, Daniel Bwala, in a post via X, listed the lessons Umahi might have learned from the workers following the protest.
He said Wike will face a similar fate, adding it is one of the reasons President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was advised to avoid appointing ex-governors as Ministers.
He wrote: “The Minister of works must have learned these from the workers union;
“1. Dictatorial Governors are the problem of Nigeria.
“2. There are rules and regulation which governs governance, not whims and caprices.
“3. You may dominate a tribe, you cannot dominate all tribes.
“4. There is a big difference between states and the federation.
“5. Nigerians are getting fed up with nonsensical behaviors.
“6. Even civilians, when they are in power long enough behave like military.
“The next (ex-governor) minister to encounter protest and resistance is FCT minister. That’s why we advised PBAT not to appoint ex-governors as ministers.”
