The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has vehemently denied allegations circulating on social media platforms regarding the purchase of a luxurious N300 million Armoured Lexus LX600 SUV as his official vehicle.

Addressing the press during a recent event, Minister Wike expressed his concern over the spreading misinformation that has caused public uproar. He urged people to exercise caution and verify the authenticity of such claims before jumping to conclusions.

"I have seen what is going on in the social media, how the FCTA Permanent Secretary bought a bulletproof car of N300 million that I am using," Minister Wike stated, refuting the accusations. He maintained that the allegations were baseless and without any factual basis.

In his effort to disprove the rumors, the minister boldly invited members of the press to inspect the said vehicle personally. With an air of confidence, he encouraged them to examine the car thoroughly, even insisting that they hit the exterior to ascertain its authenticity.

"So, I want you people to go hit your hand there (on the car) and see whether it is a treated car," Minister Wike challenged skeptics. 

The controversial claims surfaced on various social media platforms, raising concerns about the utilization of public funds amidst the economic challenges faced by the nation. News of extravagant governmental expenses often elicits strong reactions from the public, making it imperative to address these issues promptly.

Minister Wike further emphasized the importance of avoiding the spread of false information, highlighting the potential consequences of damaging reputations based on unsubstantiated claims.

"With all due respect, people should be careful not to destroy other people," the minister asserted, underscoring the need for responsible journalism and discernment among citizens.

As the controversy unfolds, Nigerians eagerly await further clarification and an official statement from concerned authorities regarding the procurement process and utilization of public funds for ministerial vehicles.

In the spirit of transparency and accountability, Minister Wike's invitation to examine the vehicle personally demonstrates his commitment to dispelling rumors and ensuring that the truth prevails. The government's response to these allegations is indicative of the importance placed on maintaining public trust and confidence.

As the story develops, the nation awaits the full disclosure and a detailed account of the events surrounding the acquisition of the Armoured Lexus LX600 SUV, shedding light on the truth behind the social media speculation.
