FCT Minister Nyesom Wike Refutes Social Media Claims of Acquiring N300 Million Bulletproof Car
Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister Nyesom Wike has strongly denied rumors circulating on social media that he recently purchased a N300 million Armoured Lexus LX600. In a statement made during a visit to the Abuja Light Rail, Wike urged journalists to inspect his vehicle and verify the false claims. He emphasized the importance of reporting accurate information and not damaging the reputation of public officials.

In a bid to address the growing concern and misinformation circulating on social media, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister Nyesom Wike has vehemently refuted claims of acquiring a N300 million bulletproof car just days after being sworn in by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Speaking during a visit to the Abuja Light Rail, Wike challenged journalists to personally inspect his vehicle and confirm whether it is the alleged bulletproof variant or not.

"We are now going to the office to have a direct report from each department, but I have seen what is going on in social media, how you (FCTA Permanent Secretary) bought a bulletproof car worth N300 million that I am using," Wike stated.

He went on to express his disappointment and emphasized the need for responsible reporting by media outlets, stating, "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."

The FCT Minister made it clear that he had not given approval for the purchase of any bulletproof car and currently does not use an official bulletproof car in his capacity as FCT Minister. He urged reporters to report accurate information and refrain from spreading false rumors.

During his visit to the Abuja Light Rail, Wike also addressed the ongoing rehabilitation project and called on the contractors, Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Company, to expedite the completion of the vandalized portion of the project within a shorter timeframe.
