Wike said that “the government has a responsibility to encourage traditional leaders by providing them all the necessary logistics to enable them to do their work diligently and with ease.

“Part of that is mobility. I can’t see how traditional rulers will be boarding taxis or entering public transport. That is unacceptable.

“President Bola Tinubu has directed that it should not be allowed to continue. Has asked that we do everything possible to make it convenient and easy for you to do your assignment.” He said.

Wike said that in line with the renewed agenda of President Tinubu, every stakeholder has a role to play, including traditional rulers, particularly in the area of security.

“You know your community better than anybody; you know the people within their community, so you will be able to identify those who look like strangers.
“No agency will perform its function without the support of traditional rulers, and we believe that we must partner together to achieve the fight against insecurity.

“So today we are handing over 10 vehicles to you to please help in supporting the government to fight insecurity in your domain. Be sure that we are going to work together.

“If we don’t work together, we will not achieve results, because everybody is important in the fight against insecurity.” Wike said

He added that Tinubu has directed the FCTA to augment the little allowances the Area Councils were providing to leaders.

According to Wike, We will soon meet with the Area Councils’ Chairmen and the traditional rulers so that we can work out strategies for the welfare package and what role you will play to assist the government in achieving its renewed agenda.

“The new agenda is that things must work.

“The Mandate Secretaries have been appointed and sworn in. I don’t want to hear any excuses from any department.

“We are not here to give excuses; we know there were challenges before we came here. We must solve these challenges.”

In his response, the Chairman of the FCT Council of Traditional Rulers, the Ona of Abaji, Alhaji Adamu Yunusa, appreciated the Minister for the support and pledged the support of traditional rulers to move FCT forward.

The 3rd Class Chiefs were from Gomani, Yaba, Bwari, Pai, Garki, Jiwa, Wako, Rubochi, Gwargwarda, and Zuba Chiefdoms, all in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
