Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has rejected the Nigerian Customs Service’s request for reconsideration of its revoked land by the FCT Administration.
Dailytrust gathered that the minister had ordered FCTA to revoke unused plots of land, leading to top politicians, organisations and government agencies losing lands.
The customs officers who were led by the Acting Comptroller-General, Adewale Adeniyi, visited Wike to make a case that the affected land be returned.
Wike assured the custom boss that it would consider the land for school development but on the condition that the agency would pledge to develop the land within a specific period.
He, however, vowed to revoked the land if the Custom failed to comply.
