On Tuesday, June 4, 2024, Wike was captured in a viral video directing permanent secretaries in his ministry to take a bow before the President.
This caused a stir on social media as many expressed disgust toward the act.
Reacting to the criticisms, on Thursday, June 6, while commissioning the seventh FCT project as part of activities marking Tinubu’s one year in office, Wike defended his action.

According to him, he made the order to show appreciation to the President who approved the appointment of the permanent secretaries whom he said had earlier lost hope in their career progression.

The FCT Minister said:

“Two days ago, when the President came, we tried to thank him for what he did to ensure that those who had already lost hope in their career progression got to the peak of their career.

“Before now, FCTA did not have permanent secretaries. But with Mr. President’s renewed hope, he said they must get to the peak of their careers by getting to the position of permanent secretary and head of the civil service, if possible.

“Mr. President granted that, and then I called out the permanent secretaries who are the beneficiaries to come out and take a bow and thank Mr. President.

“It is an honour to be called out to take a bow, but some human beings can never see anything good. Instead, they are criticising, saying, ‘How will you call people who are permanent secretaries and ask them to take a bow?”
