Wike Suspends Events At International Conference Centre

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has suspended all events at the International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja, over poor maintenance of the facility.

Wike announced the suspension when he inspected the centre in Abuja yesterday.

He said the suspension was to enable Julius Berger to carry out holistic rehabilitation of the centre.

The minister had terminated the contract of Messrs Integrated Facility Management Services Ltd, assigned to manage the centre.

After going round the facility, he described it as a mere conference centre, saying there was nothing international about the centre.

“When we came here for the ECOWAS inauguration sometime last week, with President Bola Tinubu, no right-thinking human being would see the state of this facility and be happy.

“In fact, during the inauguration, Tinubu drew my attention to the rot. Even the lighting system was so poor. This is unacceptable. There is no way we can accept this as an International Conference Centre.

“You cannot call it a conference centre but not international, because there is no standard compared to any international conference centre,” he said.
