A report by The Nation indicates that many prominent Nigerians, some former ministers, ex-governors, non-serving senators, top politicians, and others, have lost the land allocated to them in Abuja by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).
The revocation order was issued through a public notice and published as an advertorial due to failure to develop property or contravention of relevant laws.
Among those affected are ex-governors/Senators Liyel Imoke and Joshua Dariye. Imoke was Cross River State Governor, while Dariye was served in Plateau State.
Also on the list are former Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) Kanu Agabi (SAN) and the Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, Peter Obi.
Also revoked are properties allocated now deceased former public office holders, such as: the late Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the late Ufot Joseph Ekaette and the late publisher of Leadership newspaper, Sam Nda-Isaiah.
The FCTA revoked 165 properties in this batch.
Many companies have also lost their landed properties. These include Trade Bank; Wema Bank, Julius Berger, and Pearl & Diamond Properties Limited, among others.
