FG to take over empty Abuja houses, sell them 


The Chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, Okoi Obono-Obla, said on Tuesday the Federal Government would soon take over empty houses in Abuja and sell them.

Obono-Obla, who is also the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Prosecution, stated this when the “Say No Campaign,” a civil society organization, paid him a courtesy call in Abuja.

He said there was need for the government to collaborate with civil society groups in order to search out properties of looters of national treasury.


He said: “I want the houses taken over. That is where CSOs will have to work together with us.


“We have to take over those buildings and sell them and maybe put the money into education for our children.

“I was appointed to work to galvanise the anti- corruption war. This assignment is a very important one and I will do it well.”
