The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has planned to demolish 200 buildings in Nuwalege community along the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Mr Mukhtar Galadima, Director, Department of Development Control made this known during a community engagement in the FCT.

He said the move became necessary following a request from the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) to pave way for expansion of the Presidential Fleet.

“About a month ago, the authority of the Nigerian Air Force wrote to the Honourable Minister on their needs and desire to remove this village because it is part of the presidential fleet plots.

“So, the minister, in his wisdom, requested that they allow the FCT Administration to handle it, because it is the responsibility of the FCT Administration.

“The Nigerian Air Force approached the Department of Development Control on their desire, and as part of our responsibility, we have to do what you call a community and citizens’ engagement.

“It will be unfair to just bring the machine here and start removing their houses.

“So, we visited the Chief at his palace and we told him our reason for coming to this place,”he said.

On compensation, Galadima said discussions were ongoing with the Air Force to verify past compensations.
