Wike Revokes 165 Plots Of Land In Abuja

Minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike, has approved the immediate revocation of 165 plots of land in the serviced districts of Abuja.

According to a statement by the FCT Administration, the revocation was premised on the failure of the allotted owners to develop the plots.

It added that the notice for the revocation, as compiled by the Land Department, was approved by Wike, due to continuous contravention of the terms of agreement as encapsulated in the 1978 Land Use Act.

The FCT director of information and communication, Muhammad Hazat Sule, said the revoked plots belong to individuals and corporate organizations, who have continually failed to keep to the terms of agreement as contained in Section 28(5) (a) & (b) of the Land Use Act.

The affected plots are situated within some districts in the FCC namely: Central Business District, Maitama (A05); Maitama (A06); Wuse II (A08); Gudu (B01) and Wuye (B03).

Others are Jabi (B04); Utako (B05); Katampe Extension (B19); Idu Industrial Area (C16) and Asokoro (A04) Districts respectively.

“The revocation of the affected plots was approved by the minister following the violation of the terms of Rights of Occupancy.

“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 affected titles for continued contravention of the terms of development of the Right of Occupancy to wit non-development,” Sule said.
