According to the FCT Minister, homes that were constructed on green spaces and in a way that distorted the Abuja Masterplan will also be demolish, regardless of who owned them or not.

“Pity on all of those individuals who are distorting the Abuja Masterplan. It will do down if you are aware that you have constructed someplace you shouldn’t.

“Be you a Minister of anywhere, be you an ambassador, if you know you have developed where you were not supposed to develop, your house must go down. Those who have taken over the green areas to build, sorry, our parks must come back, the green areas must come back. If you hate green, you must hate yourself,” Wike said.

When asked if his promised demolition will be used as retaliation against his rivals, Wike replied, “Say the truth, you don’t like those who step on toes. I’ll step on some toes.

“I’ll step on the powerful and magnificent. “If you are doing what is wrong, I will do what I am supposed to do,” he said, adding that his responsibility was to restore the FCT to its previous state as opposed to using it as a tool to persecute specific individuals.
