Wike: Why I Asked Permanent Secretaries To Bow Before Tinubu

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has explained reasons why he asked permanent secretaries to bow before President Bola Tinubu.

The Minister on Tuesday during the commissioning of the Aerial Road N20 Expressway at the nation’s capital city directed the permanent secretaries bow before Tinubu.

Reacting to criticisms which trailed the directive, Wike said the action was to show appreciation to the President who granted approval for the appointment of the permanent secretaries whom he said had earlier lost hope in their career progression.

The Minister said, “Two days ago, when the President came, we tried to thank him for what he did in making sure that those who had already lost hope in their career progression got to the peak of their career,” Wike said.

“Before now, FCTA did not have permanent secretaries. But with Mr. President’s renewed hope, he said they must get to the peak of their careers by getting to the position of permanent secretary and head of the civil service, if possible.

“Mr. President granted that, and then I called out the permanent secretaries who are the beneficiaries to come out and take a bow and thank Mr. President.”

He condemned those criticising the action, saying those attacking him lacked anything good to say.

“It is an honour to be called out to take a bow, but some human beings can never see anything good. Instead, they are criticising, saying, ‘How will you call people who are permanent secretaries and ask them to take a bow?

“In my place, when someone does not have anything good to say about you, they will say, ‘look at him’.

“Instead of you to commend Mr. President for doing well, for giving hope to those that didn’t have hope before.”
