The recently appointed Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr. Nyesom Wike, has urged supporters and well-wishers to refrain from erecting congratulatory billboards in his honor following his new appointment. This call was made through an official statement issued by the Director of Press in the Office of the Minister, Mr. Anthony Ogunleye, on a serene Sunday afternoon in Abuja.
