FCT threatens to revoke undeveloped resettlement plots

Hudu Yakubu, Abuja 


The Authority of the Nigerian Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has threatened to revoke undeveloped plots in all the resettlement sites to pave way for speedy development.

The FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Aliyu, gave this threat at Shere Galuwyi Resettlement site while on tour of facilities in Bwari Area of the territory.

However, the minister promised that the FCT Administration would not jettisoned the Resettlement Scheme, despite seemingly challenges being faced.

The minister stressed that ”the vision of President Muhammadu Bahari’s administration is to embark on completion of all abandoned and ongoing projects.”  

She also directed the Satellite Towns Development Department, to evolve measures that would fast track completion of Mpape, Shere-Galuwyi road project.

She affirmed that the road was one of the major satellite roads that if completed would boost the economic life of Bwari residents and FCT as a whole.

Marching order
According to her, the marching order on the 19 kilometer road was in line with president Muhammadu Buhari’s determination to deliver dividends of democracy to the people including residents of the Territory.

However, on the Galuwyi resettlement site, the minister called on Directors of Resettlement Department and Satellite Towns Development Department, to synergise and come up with processes that would provide an enabling environment for the people to move in.

“All the people that have allocations in Galuwyi should hasten up work on them. By doing so, more developmental projects will come. But if they are having some challenges they should channel them to us.  

“The economic life of these people that will stay in this place must be taken into consideration. So all the Secretariat should do the needful for us to have a head way here. No body will be happy to pack in here without the basic social amenities on ground,” she said.

The Chairman of Bwari Area Council Secretariat, Mr. John Gabaya, called on the youths to embrace peace, stressing that the FCT Administration will only attract developments to the council in an atmosphere of peace.

The council boss thanked the FCT Minister of State for the visit and pledged to support the administration irrespective of political differences.

Meanwhile, the minister used the occasion to inspect the Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat Fish Farm Estate, Junior Secondary School, Igu, and Bwari Rehabilitation centre.

She also visited the palaces of Esu Bwari, His Royal Highness Ibrahim Yero and Sarkin Bwari, His Royal Highness Awwal Ija-Koro, with a call on them to support FCT Administration to succeed in delivering people oriented services.
