“Our firm is Diaspora firm from the United States of America and the project is to gulp $500 million. All the required input for the project has been submitted to FCDA, but cannot carry out development due to these encroachments.”
Enyigwe said that on October 14, 2013, the FCDA revoked the land and ordered Kwankwaso to vacate the land, which three national dailies published as news, that after three months of his vacation from the land, he came back to erect a sprawling mansion on the land which was designed for a green area and having no approval from FCDA.
Meanwhile, Enyigwe added that it was ready to exhaust all available means constitutionally to address the issue, calling on President Goodluck Jonathan, the FCT Minister, Sen. Bala Mohammed, Senate Committee Chairman on FCT, Sen. Smart Adeyemi, the Inspector General of Police, and Chairman, Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, to investigate the matter and for justice to prevail.
All effort to reach Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso proved abortive as he was said to be out of the country, however, the Director of Press and Public Relations to Governor Kwankwaso, Baba Halilu Dantiye, although aware of the land issue, refused to speak on the matter.
