Wike warns Satellite Towns Coordinator against negotiating with contractors


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has warned the Coordinator of Satellite Towns Development Department, STDD, Mr Abdulkadir Zulkiflu, against negotiating with contractors.

The former Rivers State Governor gave the warning while inaugurating the coordinator in Abuja on Tuesday.

He advised the coordinator to view the appointment as an opportunity to contribute to national development.

He advised Zulkiflu to effectively coordinate activities in the satellite towns, as against sitting in the office and negotiating with contractors.

“It is your business to coordinate, liaise and brief me as the minister of the FCT.

“You are not sent there to sit in your office and begin to negotiate with contractors. If I find out, I will not hesitate to take necessary action,” he said.

The minister said that the FCT Administration was working to ensure all satellite towns felt the impact of the government.

He urged the coordinator to utilise the opportunity to achieve results and make the needed impact, pointing out the numerous ongoing projects in the satellite towns.

This, he said, would ensure that residents of satellite towns feel the impact of President Bola Tinubu’s “Renewed Hope” agenda.

“Mine is, do your work. If you do your work, everybody will see that you are doing your work.

“I don’t like praise singers. Your action will speak for you.

“Now that FCTA is seriously involved in the development of satellite towns, make sure that things are done very well,” the minister said.
