The Federal Capital Territory Administration, under the leadership of Minister Nyesom Wike, has taken back 167 pieces of land situated in upscale areas of the nation’s capital, Abuja.
Among those who lost their land allocations are Peter Obi, who was a presidential candidate for the Labour Party, Udoma Udoma, former Senate Chief Whip, Senator Liyel Imoke, former Cross River Governor, Ufot Ekaette, the inaugural Minister of Niger Delta, and the late Sam Nda-Isaiah, publisher of Leadership Newspaper.
The FTC Administration officially announced this revocation in a notice issued on Thursday night, citing the failure of the land allottees to develop their properties.
“The Federal Capital Territory Administration hereby informs the general public that 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 under-listed 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,” the notice signed by the Permanent Secretary, Olusade Adesola, stated.
