FCT: Drama as Wike orders Permanent Secretaries to bow before Tinubu

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike on Tuesday caused a mild drama as he ordered the Permanent Secretaries in his ministry to bow before President Bola Tinubu.

Wike issued the order during the inauguration of the arterial road N20 named after Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka in Abuja.

The minister ordered the Perm Secs to leave their seats and bow before Tinubu as a show of appreciation for their appointments.

Wike’s directive led to widespread laughter among the audience.

Speaking, Wike said: “Most of them have never dreamt in their lives that they will ever get to the peak of their careers.

“So if you permit me, I don’t know those beneficiaries, the permanent secretaries, I don’t know whether they are here. Come out, come out.

“You are the beneficiary here, come out. You are supposed to be the agent of renewed hope. Come out, come out.

“Both women, both men, everyone, face here and take a bow before Mr. President. The lucky ones. Your Excellency, these are the first set of permanent secretaries that you made.

“Head of service, are you not a permanent secretary? And that is their head of service. These are the technical teams now that we have. So I want to sincerely thank you.

“For them to be head of service, it was not available. But now you have made it available. I know some of their pastors who have been praying for them.”
