Eagles Get Condition To Secure Abuja Land Gift


The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) is awaiting members of the victorious Super Eagles to fill and return forms issued to them before the Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) of the land given to them by the Federal Government will be processed.

Senior Special Assistant on Information Management System to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Hajia Jamila Tangaza, told National Mirror exclusively that papers which the technical crew and players who won the AFCON 2013 in South Africa last month must fill and return, were given to them immediately after President Goodluck Jonathan hosted them on February 13 and announced the national honours, monetary and land gifts.

Although she said that she did not know the area in Abuja, where the plots of land will be allocated to members of the team, Tangaza said unlike in the past when some sportsmen and women were promised land and houses, which were not fulfilled, the Federal Government would not renege on its promise to the team.

She expressed the readiness of the FCTA to give the land title deeds to the Super Eagles once the players and their coaches filled and returned the forms issued to them to process the allocations. “We have given them the actual form and a commitment to give them the land. They are to fill the form and bring it back with all the necessary documents. “I took down their names personally.

I learnt one or two of them have returned theirs. Now, giving them the land is dependent on their own commitment to filling those forms,” the FCT Minister’s aide, said. Tangaza said the layout of the area the plots of land will be allocated to the team had already been designed, adding however, that she would not know the exact part of the city until the C of Os are signed by the Minister, Alhaji Bala Mohammed.

“The layout, as I learnt, has already been designed. The government is serious about it. We are ready to give them the land as soon as they complete the forms which we put in the envelopes that were given to them at the Villa during the reception.

“The layout has been designed. Everything is ready. It is left for them to just fill those forms and then submit to us,” she added.
