FHA to recover property in estates taken illegally – official

The  Management of Federal Housing Authority (FHA) says it is set to recover all property and parcels of land in its estates taken illegally.

The management made this known in a statement by the Head,  Public Affairs, FHA, Mr Kenneth  Chigelu, on Tuesday in Abuja.

According to him, the authority will not be deterred  in ensuring that all government property taken illegally are recovered in all her estates.

Chigelu said the recovery of the property and lands had started since Sen. Gbenga Ashafa, became its Managing Director.

”FHA has started undergoing a process repositioning in all areas of its operations.

 “The process has led to the elimination of fraudulent acquisition of lands and property, as was the case in the past.

“The exercise which started from Abuja, FCT and Lagos, South West zone, where the cases are much, has spread to the other zones,” he said.

Chigelu said the exercise affected Miracle City Church (Ambassador Royal Ministries) as it had no valid title on the 15,000sq meters of land it was claiming.

He said the Church had no approved building plan, neither could  it boast of receipts of payment or genuine survey plans.

“Federal Housing Authority as a government agency, has legitimately laid down  procedures for land allocation. The Church has no evidence of any of these processes.

“FHA as a responsible government agency, statutorily has the responsibility of embarking on Development Control measures in her estates.

“These include serving of Stop Work orders to control contraventions and illegal developments,” Chigelu said.

He said that the Church should make public its valid land allocation papers, approved building plan,and evidence of of the land to enable the Authority review its status in FHA Estate.
