No supporters to plead his case.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday ordered for investigation into the implementation of the Land Swap Policy initiated by former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Bala Muhammad.
The move followed a motion by Rep. Yunusa Abubakar (Gombe-APC) representing Yamaltu/Deba Federal Constituency of Gombe State.

Abubakar in his motion stressed the need to investigate the abandoned capital projects and alleged malpractice associated with the land swap deals in the FCT.

He expressed dismay that most infrastructure-based projects in the FCT had been abandoned, after the administration initiated them and made adequate provisions for such in its budgets.


He said that the immediate past administration of Dr Goodluck Jonathan allegedly approved variations in the contract values of some of the projects without due process.

The representative said that in a bid to source funds as additional revenue, the FCTA embarked on land swap policy.

He added that in the policy, green lands were granted to estate developers to build roads, install electricity, potable water, drainages and sewage lines.

He further said that investigation was needed, following widespread allegations that the selection of investors was tainted with fraudulent practices and undue favoritism.
