Demolish Aso villa, military barracks – Atiku’s aide tells Wike
As he begins efforts to ensure adherence to the Abuja master plan, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has been urged to demolish Aso Rock and military barracks within the capital city.
An aide to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and and 2023 presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, Daniel Bwala, made the call on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
Bwala explained that Aso Rock and some military barracks must be demolished if the original Abuja master plan is to be adhered to.
He said Wike should focus on other important things other than pulling down buildings.
“The FCT is not like the Ministry of Works; it is an Administration. There are many more important things than demolition that make up the Administration of the FCT.
“Let’s even start with the demolition. Wike said he wants to go back to the original Master Plan. If we may talk about the original Master Plan, let me tell you that the Aso Villa that sits the President, the seat of power is not in the original Master Plan, it must go down.
“Secondly, all the military barracks that you see within the FCT are not in the original Master Plan; then the military barracks must go down.
“Thirdly, the famous Asokoro you are hearing and the extension where all the governors in Nigeria either have liaison offices or their private homes, they are not in the original plan, they must go down. There are many Federal Government assets and buildings in strategic places that are not in the original Master Plan.”
Following his resumption as FCT Minister, Wike had threatened to demolish buildings illegally erected.
