Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has expressed optimism that Nigeria will come out of its current turmoil.

Wike gave the assurance when the Methodist Prelate, Most Rev. Oliver Aba, visited him in Abuja on Thursday.

He said: "I believe by the special grace of God, Nigeria would come out from the turmoil that we are in. The signs are clear, we have no regret and we have no doubt that victory shall be ours."

The minister thanked the church for the prayers for the government of President Bola Tinubu to actualise his vision and dreams in the "Renewed Hope Agenda."

He noted that nobody could govern without the backing of God, adding that it was important for every leader to know this.

"That is why Tinubu has never failed to ask religious leaders to continue to pray for his administration and for the growth of Nigeria. Prayer is key. We can do all we think, but without God, nothing can be achieved, and so his victory, his hope is anchored on God," he added.

He assured the Methodist Church that the FCT Administration would consider their request for land to build offices and a media centre.

Earlier, Aba stated that the land, if allocated, would be used for the development of a liaison office and a benefiting media centre to enhance evangelism and other social amenities.

He said a similar request was submitted to the administration in 2023 but was not granted.

He pledged the church's commitment for continued prayers to support the Tinubu-led government to succeed.
