Master Plan: Wike must also demolish Aso Villa, Military Barracks, says Bwala

Daniel Bwala, a spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council during the 2023 elections, has criticized the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike, over his threat to demolish buildings that are not in the original Master Plan of Abuja.

Bwala, revealed this when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday.

He argued that if the original Master Plan of the FCT must be followed, then the seat of power Aso Villa and some other government assets must be demolished as well.

“The FCT is not like the Ministry of Works; it is an Administration. There are many more important things than demolition that make up the Administration of the FCT.

“Let’s even start with the demolition. He (Wike) said he wants to go back to the original Master Plan. If we may talk about the original Master Plan, let me tell you that the Aso Villa that sits the President, the seat of power is not in the original Master Plan, it must go down.

“Secondly, all the military barracks that you see within the FCT are not in the original Master Plan; then the military barracks must go down.

“Thirdly, the famous Asokoro you are hearing and the extension where all the governors in Nigeria either have liaison offices or their private homes, they are not in the original plan, they must go down. There are many Federal Government assets and buildings in strategic places that are not in the original Master Plan,” he said.

While recognizing Wike for his capability to excel as a minister, he advised that the former governor should calm down and get things done without fighting.

Recall that after his inauguration as FCT minister by President Bola Tinubu on August 21, Wike had sounded a demolition warning to landlords of properties distorting the Master Plan of Abuja.
