FEC approves resumption of FCT land swap plan
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Federal Executive Council (FEC), presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, has approved the resumption of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) land swap plan.
FCT Minister, Mohammed Bello, in a statement while briefing State House correspondents shortly after a virtual meeting of the council revealed that the approval followed a memo he presented.
The initiative, which was put at about N1 trillion under the previous dispensation, was designed to remedy the infrastructure deficit in the Federal capital by swapping lands with private investors who would in turn provide necessary infrastructure.
According to the Minister, the approval followed a memo he presented to the council during the meeting, Daily Post reported.
He also said that amendments were made to the original form of the initiative by establishing a legal framework to protect all parties.bağcılar mutlu son
