Wike Revokes 168 Plots belonging to influential Personalities In Abuja
The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has revoked 168 plots in Abuja belonging to highly influential personalities in the country
Top names like the Presidential Candidate of the Labour party, Peter Obi, Liyel Imoke, Musa Aboki Egu, Hassan Hadejia and Ishaya Baba got their land in Maitama District revoked.
In other areas, the lands of big names like Uffot Joseph Ekaette, Shittu Mohammed, Udoma Udo Udoma, Kanu Agabi, Niki Niki Tobi, Ishaku Bello, and others got their land revoked.
According to the report, at least 167 plots of land were revoked across Maitama, Gudu, Wuye, Katampe, Katampe Extension, Wuse 2, Jabi, Utako, Idu Industrial zone, and Asokoro.
In a notice released by the FCTA permanent secretary, Mr. Olusade Adesola, on Thursday, September 21, it was confirmed that the lands were revoked due to the refusal and delay of the allottees to develop them.
The notice reads:
“The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory has, in the exercise of the powers conferred on him under Section 28(5)(a) & (b) of the Land Use Act 1978, revoked the underlisted plots with names and titles as reflected in our records for continued contravention of the terms of development of the Right of Occupancy to wit non-development.”
In his inaugural press briefing, Wike noted vehemently that his task was to restore the masterplan of Abuja and rehabilitate some of the damaged infrastructures of the mega city.
He stated that he would revoke lands not developed by the allottees and demolish structures built in areas the Federal Capital Development Agency disapproved.
