    ‘Buildings will go down be you minister or ambassador’ – Wike assumes office as FCT minister

    Published By:

    Newly sworn-in minister of the Federal Capital Territory FCT, Nyesom Wike on Monday assumed office, and threatened to demolish illegal buildings.

    The former governor of River State arrived at FCTA at about 1:20 pm today after the swearing-in ceremony to hold his first conference.

    Wike during his inauguration speech said his administration will demolish any illegal buildings regardless of who the owners are.

    According to him: “All those people who are distorting the master plan of Abuja, too bad! If you know you’ve built where you’re not supposed to build, it will go down.

    “Be you a minister or ambassador, if you know you have developed where you are not supposed to develop, your house must go down.

    “Those who have taken over the green areas to build, sorry, our parks must come park. The green areas must come back. If you hate green, you hate yourself.

    Those who have taken over the parks and green areas as where you now do restaurants, we would not accept that. It will go down.

    “And all those people who are doing land racketeering, that period is over. And those that the government have allocated lands to them and they refused to develop, the land is gone.

    “I’m going to revoke them because I don’t understand how land that you may have paid for N200,000, you now begin to find who will buy it for N2 billion. Who does that?

    “We will take back our land and give to those who want to develop. And you must sign that you must develop at a certain time,” Wike said.
