Adamu Kabir Matazu, the convener of a civil society group, Network of Civil Societies for Economic Sustainability, spoke on behalf of the protesters and alleged that the minister should be probed over policies on the allocation of land in the FCT.

Also, the minister is facing strong criticism from the lone senator representing the FCT at the national assembly, Ireti Kingibe, over some projects the minister set to embark on.

Kingibe has described the projects as non-people oriented, confronted Wike at a stakeholders meeting and appeared on television station to air her opinion against the projects.

Aside his rift with some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the former governor of Rivers state has been finding it difficult to find peace with his successor, Siminalayi Fubara, who has allegedly destroyed the political structure he put in place.

Speaking to Legit.ng on the development, Temiloluwa Bamgbose, a public commentator, stated that Wike and Gbajabiamila appeared to have strong political relationship and that the minister may be decamping to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said:

"Wike and Gbajabiamila have maintained political friendship prior to the election and he may join the APC in the subsequent days in order to secure his job as a minister."
