Nyesom Wike, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has denounced what he describes as a malicious text message from a land developer accusing him of bias against the Igbo community. In an exclusive interview, Wike addressed the challenges facing the FCT, including lawsuits and allegations of land grabbing, signaling a new era of transparency and accountability in land administration.

The minister expressed dismay over the purported text message, where the land developer allegedly misrepresented Wike’s stance on ethnic matters. Wike vehemently denied the accusations, emphasizing the need to combat fraudulent practices within land development circles.

“The problem in this country is impunity,” Wike declared, highlighting the prevalence of land grabbing and fraudulent activities in the FCT. He underscored the importance of upholding due process and accountability in land allocation, particularly in light of ongoing legal disputes.

Wike revealed the complexities surrounding land allocation, citing instances where land developers exploited loopholes for personal gain. He recounted a case where a company attempted to sell land despite ongoing legal scrutiny, underscoring the need for stringent oversight.

Addressing concerns over revenue generation, Wike emphasized the government’s commitment to ensuring that allocated land serves its intended purpose. He condemned the exploitation of government land for speculative purposes, pledging to prioritize economic development and job creation through strategic land allocation.

The minister’s stance on demolitions in the FCT reflects a broader strategy to enforce compliance with land regulations and prevent misuse of government property. Wike defended the government’s actions, citing legal precedents and the need to uphold the integrity of land administration.

Despite public outcry over demolition orders, Wike reaffirmed his commitment to enforcing regulatory measures to combat illegal land activities. He underscored the importance of adhering to due process, stressing the government’s obligation to protect public resources and uphold the rule of law.

As the FCT grapples with legal challenges and public scrutiny, Wike remains steadfast in his determination to reform land administration and promote sustainable development. His efforts to combat corruption and restore public trust signal a new chapter in the governance of Abuja’s land resources.
