Wike makes monthly security meetings mandatory for FCT council chairmen


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has mandated the chairmen of the six area councils to hold mandatory monthly security meetings aimed at improving the security situation in their respective area councils.

The former Rivers State governor, who gave the directive during a security town hall at Abuja Municipal Area Council, AMAC, on Friday, said he should be notified if any chairman failed to hold the monthly security meeting.

According to him, any council chairman who does not hold monthly security meetings is a threat to the security of the council.

“Therefore, I will be calling meetings of all traditional leaders, meeting with all council chairmen and meeting with all security agencies.

“If there is no monthly meeting held in terms of security meetings in the councils, I should be aware, and I will hold that chairman responsible for any security breach.

“If you do your job, I do my job, traditional leaders do their job, and security agencies do their own job, we won’t have problems.

“But if I don’t do your own part, I don’t do my own part, and he does not do his own part, then we are bound to have security problems,” said Wike.

He assured residents that the government would provide everything that security agencies required to help them perform their duties.

He pointed out that some of the security agencies do not have the needed equipment and operational vehicles to perform optimally.
