Wike Has Revoked Land Rights, Affecting Individuals Like Imoke And Udoma Due To Violations


Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has canceled the ownership of 165 plots of land in Abuja, including those belonging to prominent Nigerians. 

According to a document signed by FCT Permanent Secretary Olushade Adeshola, reported by The PUNCH, this action was taken due to the breach of development terms outlined in the Right of Occupancy. 

The document states that Wike, exercising his authority under Section 28 (5) (a) and (b) of the Land Use Act, 1978, revoked these specific plots because they failed to meet the required development standards. 

Notable individuals affected by this revocation include former Udoma Udoma, Senate Chief Whip, Liyel Imoke, former Cross River Governor, Ufot Ekaette, the first Minister of Niger Delta, and the late Sam Nda-Isaiah, publisher of Leadership Newspaper. 

Wike, from his first day in office, had pledged to revoke any land that violated the Abuja Land Use Act, regardless of the individuals involved.
