Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The na­tives of the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT), un­der the aus­pices of the Gbali Lib­er­a­tion As­so­ci­a­tion (GBALA) have ap­pealed to the FCT Min­is­ter, Mo­hammed Musa Bello, over a plan to carry out de­mo­li­tion at Iddo Bubuta, along Air­port Road.

Ad­dress­ing jour­nal­ists, GBALA chair­man, Mr. Dikko Zaphaniyah, said some de­vel­op­ment con­trol officials were in the com­mu­nity to in­form them of the planned de­mo­li­tion.

He said the FCDA officials told the com­mu­nity that the de­mo­li­tion was ne­ces­si­tated by com­plaints from the man­age­ment of the Univer­sity of Abuja that the vil­lage was sited on the in­sti­tu­tion’s land.

“And be­sides, there was no let­ter ei­ther from the univer­sity’s man­age­ment or the FCDA to back up the claim that Iddo Bubuta vil­lage is sited on the land of the Univer­sity of Abuja. This is the reason why we are ur­gently call­ing on the FCT min­is­ter, Mo­hammed Musa Bello, to in­ter­vene,” he said.

Also speak­ing on the mat­ter, the Chief of Iddo Bubuta vil­lage, Yakubu Musa Al­kali, urged the min­is­ter to in­ter­vene and ad­dress the mat­ter in the in­ter­est of peace and sta­bil­ity.

He said the de­mo­li­tion has been cre­at­ing ten­sion in the com­mu­nity.
