Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has refuted claims of purchasing a N300 million Armoured Lexus LX600 SUV on assumption to office.
“I have seen what is going on in the social media, how the FCTA Permanent Secretary bought a bullet proof car of N300 million that I am using.
“So, I want you people to go hit your hand there (on the car) and see whether it is a treated car.
“With all due respect, people should be careful not to destroy other people,” he said.
He explained that when he resumed, the Permanent Secretary, Adesola Olusade, had told him that the FCTA has cars that the ministers would use.
“And the car we use is this (pointing at a regular Lexus SUV).
“I have never approved for any car to be bought, and I have not used any official bulletproof car.
“I am not using a bulletproof car as FCT Minister, so we should report the right thing and not destroy ourselves.”
