Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Ma­likatu Umar Shuaibu

Of­fi­cials of the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (FCDA) have or­gan­ised a sen­si­ti­sa­tion cam­paign for orig­i­nal in­hab­i­tants in Garki chief­dom.

The of­fi­cials, along with other city man­agers, in­ter­acted with hun­dreds of stake­hold­ers from Apo, Akp­ma­jenya and Garki vil­lages in or­der to pave way for a seam­less re­set­tle­ment ex­er­cise on the planned re­lo­ca­tion of the peo­ple to Apo Re­set­tle­ment site.

This is com­ing against the back­drop of rein­vig­o­rated ef­fort to­wards re­lo­cat­ing orig­i­nal in­hab­i­tants of Garki chief­dom to Apo Re­set­tle­ment area.

The Direc­tor, FCDA Re­set­tle­ment and Com­pen­sa­tion De­part­ment, Al­haji Baba-Kura Umar, who led the del­e­ga­tion, said an ex­panded im­ple­men­ta­tion com­mit­tee was set up to en­sure seam­less re­lo­ca­tion ex­er­cise.

Umar dis­closed that the gov­ern­ment has since com­menced is­suance of let­ters of in­tent to the orig­i­nal in­hab­i­tants of Garki, warn­ing that the doc­u­ment was not trans­fer­able.

He said it was a con­tin­u­ous ex­er­cise and urged those af­fected to be pa­tient as ev­ery­one would be car­ried along.

Re­spond­ing, the Sa’peyi of Garki, Al­haji Us­man Nga-Kupi, who ex­pressed sat­is­fac­tion with the re­set­tle­ment plan, thanked stake­hold­ers for their co­op­er­a­tion in the process.

He said the ti­tle doc­u­ment given to them was for their chil­dren and warned them against sell­ing them, and avoid be­ing shut out of the on­go­ing re­lo­ca­tion scheme.
