ABUJA, Nigeria – The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has earmarked 400 hectares of land as permanent site in Wasa, Waru district, for the relocation of the Apo Mechanic traders and Artisans.

This was disclosed yesterday by the Chairman of the Committee for Relocation of the Traders, Abubakar Makama, when the Committee visited the site.

It could be recall that the Coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Obuh Felix, at the weekend inaugurated a 19 Members Technical Committee on behalf of the FCT Administration.

The committee was saddled with the responsibility of ensuring a successful relocation of the traders from the Apo Mechanic site to the permanent site in Wasa, Waru district.

Speaking at the site, the Committee Chairman, Abubakar Makama said that they are starting with the Apo Mechanic traders before the Artisans because of the pressure from the traders and ongoing road construction in the area.

“As they are on ground now, they will take the perimeter again, until when they finish their work, we’d be able to tentatively say, this is the size. But for now we can say 391 hecters, that’s almost 400 hecters for the Apo Machanic business men and the Artisans.

“We are starting with the Apo Mechanic because of the pressure and ongoing road construction with the area.

“What we are saying in terms of accessibility, the relocation site is well connected with many expressway. If you start from the main Apo Junction, the expressway construction is going on as you can see by yourself how the road was diverted as we were coming in, and then as we were also joining the Apo-Karshi road, you can see how they were linked with another expressway through Waru district up to the Wassa district.

“Right now we are in Wassa, we are are going to the relocation site, and this road is where Apo-Karshi is linked. In a North shell what we are saying is that, the proposed is accessible”, Makama stated.

He assured the traders that the committee will work within stipulated time of three months given to them by the Coordinator to deliver it assignment.

Makama also assured the APO Machanic traders that equal treatment will be given to the affected person in the course of the assignment.
