FCT: It’s not Tinubu’s responsibility to identify criminals – Wike

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike on Friday declared it is not President Bola Tinubu’s responsibility to identify where criminals are.

Wike said Tinubu would provide security tools but the security agencies are saddled with the responsibility to confront criminals.

He spoke while presenting 50 operational vehicles fitted with communication gadgets to security agencies in Abuja.

Wike, however, assured that security is one of Tinubu’s key priorities.

He said, “For us as a government, it is not the responsibility of Mr President to go and identify where the criminals are; it is not my responsibility or the minister of state’s responsibility to go and engage criminals.

“It is our responsibility to provide the tools for the security agencies to confront these criminals and make sure we sleep with our two eyes closed.

“If we do not play this role, it will be difficult for our security agencies to be effective and to be able to carry out this function of securing lives and properties.”

He urged residents to support and pray for the security agents “who sometimes lose their lives in the line of duty”.
