Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has once again shown off his culinary skills — this time cooking for Bukola Saraki, former senate president.
In a viral video of their time together, Wike is seen cooking while still dressed in his work outfit as Saraki spectates.
The kitchen was also crowded with several associates and friends of the two politicians.

This is not the first time Wike has displayed his culinary prowess in the kitchen.
In September, the minister was seen preparing food for Femi Gbajabiamila, the chief of staff to the president, who was also watching keenly while he cooked.
On August 16, President Bola Tinubu appointed Wike as the minister of the FCT.
However, his appointment was met with mixed reactions on social media, especially from the camp of his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Some members of the PDP criticised him for accepting the appointment, calling it an “anti-party activity”.
In his response, Wike said he got the party’s approval to accept the appointment.
“Before this appointment came, I wrote to the national party chairman, minority leader of the house of representatives and senate, zonal chairman of the party, my state chairman, and my governor,” he said.
“All of them wrote me back: ‘Accept it’. I have it in evidence documented.”
Recently, he declared his intent to collect ground rent from defaulting property owners in Abuja.
He also demolished the “Kasuwan Dare” market, citing it as a hideout for hoodlums and drug dealers in the Asokoro district.
