The Minister of the FCT, Senator Bala Mohammed has set up an 11-man committee to review land administration.
The move by the minister is sequel to the release of a study done on the FCT land acquisition procedures by the ICPC under sponsorship of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
The Acting chairman of ICPC, Barrister Ekpo Nta, last week at the headquarters of the commission made a public presentation of the review and noted that the exercise was carried out in line with the commission’s mandate of stemming corrupt practices in the public or private sector.
He added that the study was also informed by the importance of land to ordinary and corporate citizens.
FCT minister, who was represented at the occasion by the permanent secretary, Mr. Timothy Ozodinobi, said that the published report would serve as a manual for the FCT in curbing excesses in any sector within the territory.
A statement made available to LEADERSHIP at the weekend and signed by ICPC Resident Consultant, Folu Olamiti, quoted the minister as saying that the ministry would use the recommendations of the report to improve the FCT land administration system.
