Nyeson Wike assumed office shortly after he was swon-in today, August 21, emitting fire and brimstone.
He warned that massive demolition of houses and other structures that distort the Abuja original master plan will be embarked upon soon.
“Houses and other structures that distort the original Abuja master plan will go down (be demolished).”
The minister, who addressed top officials of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) in his office, said that he would not look at faces or status of anyone whose house or structure violates the master plan.
“People who are distorting the master plan of Abuja, your houses will go down.
“People who have built on green areas, your houses will go down.”
Wike, who came into President Bola Tinubu’s government under the All Progressives Congress (APC), as minister, still on the platform of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), described the FCT as too dirty, saying: “we shall embark on cleaning up of the environment.”
