The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed concerns that President Bola Tinubu may struggle to receive more than two percent of the votes in the 2027 presidential election in the capital if he does not intervene to stop Minister Nyesom Wike from undermining the party.

During a press conference in Abuja, party leaders criticized Wike for disregarding APC members in recent appointments and warned that the party could lose the upcoming Area Councils election if the situation persists.

They accused Wike of destroying the APC’s political structure in the FCT due to his lack of respect for the party and its leadership.

The APC chieftains, led by convener Comrade Abdulwahab Ekekhide and co-convener David Omobolaji Obaje, highlighted that Wike has consistently refused to meet with the party’s leadership despite multiple requests for an audience.

They emphasised that Wike, who was appointed as FCT minister by President Tinubu, has been neglecting the APC’s interests since taking office.

Ekekhide, however, said the leadership and entire members of the APC family in the FCT, in unison, reject “in very strong terms the continuous lopsided appointments, abandonment, and total disregard for the APC in FCT by the minister.”

“We call on Mr. President, who is the Governor-General to call the Minister to order, so that he can retrace his steps and start empowering the party or else, the party will struggle to get 2% for the President in the 2027 Presidential election and may lose the next Area Councils election if the situation remains this way.

“As we all know, the President is the Governor-General of the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT), but delegates his powers to a Minister, and today Barr. Nyesom Wike is standing in for the President as Hon. Minister of the FCT,” he added.
