Recall that Wike was on Wednesday named Minister of FCT by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

However, Omokri believes Wike’s appointment will be sad for the original indigenes of FCT, who according to him have never been appointed Minister.

According to him, Wike’s appointment marks the first time a Southerner has been appointed FCT Minister since Mobolaji Ajose-Adeogun was appointed to that position in 1976.

In a tweet via his Twitter handle, Omokri wrote, “The appointment by President Bola Tinubu of ex-Governor Nyesom Wike as Minister of the Federal Capital Territory will mark the first time a Southerner has been appointed FCT Minister since Mobolaji Ajose-Adeogun was appointed to that position in 1976 by the then Head of State, General Olusegun Obasanjo.

“It has taken forty-seven years for a non-Northerner to occupy that position again and coincidentally, just like in 1976, the person was appointed by a fellow Southerner.

“Sadly, the original indigenous [people] of the area now known as the Federal Capital Territory have never been appointed minister. Hopes had been high that the President would appoint the first FCT indigene ever nominated as a minister, Zephaniah Jisalo, to that position. But we have seen the way the cookie crumbled,” Reno Omokri said.
