FCTA to Revoke Undeveloped Plots of Land in Abuja
The FCT Administration has identified several undeveloped plots of land in serviced districts of the Phases I, II & III of the Federal Capital City, Abuja and has given the owners three months grace period to act or risk revocation.
The FCT Director of Land Administration, Mallam Adamu Jibrin Hussaini made this disclosure on Tuesday in his office, at Central Business District, Abuja.
The Director further disclosed that this was one of the highpoints of the Federal Capital Territory Executive Committee (FCT EXCO) meeting recently.
According to him, “the Allottees of plot (s) of land within Phases I, II & III of the Federal Capital City (FCC) that have been serviced with Infrastructure should take major steps to develop them or have them revoked”.
The Director said that the FCT EXCO frowned at the non-development of such plots; stressing that “government has expended huge amount of money to open up those Districts by providing the engineering infrastructure and would not afford to be left fallow”.
He stated that the FCT EXCO used this opportunity to remind the public, particularly the affected allottees that their failure to carry out development of such plot (s) contravenes the terms of Rights of Occupancy (R-of-O) accepted by the allottees as well as the provision of Section 28(5)(a & b) of the Land Use Act N0. 6 of 1978, Cap. L5, Laws of the Federation of the Nigeria 2004.
Mallam Hussaini warned that the affected allottees must do something drastic to avoid the impending revocation, due to non-development of such property in the nation’s capital city, Abuja.
The Director revealed that FCT Administration has therefore, given such allottees a grace period of three (3) months to commence meaningful development or have such plot (s) revoked.
