The Minister of the Federal Capacity Teritory, FCT, Mr Nyesom Wike, opined that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is not a president of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), but a president of Nigeria.
Wike hinted this when APC leaders from Rivers, led by the National Vice Chairman of APC, South South, Mr Victor Giadom, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Thursday.
He affirmed that the president had the right to take the interest of his political party at heart while steering the affairs of the country.
He said political parties were vehicles that conveyed one to a desired destination, noting that the interest of Nigerians superseded all other interests in the mind of President Tinubu.
“Mr president, having emerged, is not a president of APC but a president of Nigeria.
“While he is governing Nigeria, he must also take the interest of his political party, and nobody can stop it; it is natural.
“In governance, every Nigerian must benefit from it.
“We need to understand that the party is a vehicle that takes you to a place, and once you get to where you want to be you come out from the vehicle,” he uttered.
Meanwhile, the minister said that President Tinubu had the capacity and the political will to take action that others were afraid to take.
