FG Must Take Over Empty Houses In Abuja And Sell Them - Obono-obla by Thebest12(m): 4:52am On Sep 06, 2017
The senior special assistant to the president on prosecution, Mr Okoi Obono-Obla on Tuesday, September 5, urged the federal government to take over empty houses in Abuja and sell them.

Cross River-born Obono-Obla, who is also the chairman of the special presidential investigation panel for the recovery of public property, made this known when the Say no Campaign, a civil society organisation, paid a courtesy call on him in Abuja.

He stated that it was important for the government to collaborate with civil society groups in order to search out properties of looters of national treasury.
.
“I want the houses taken over, that is where CSOs will have to work together with us.
“We have to take over those building 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,”he said.

Obono-Obla also said that there was a law known as the Recovery of Public Property Special Provisions Act which had been in existence for the past 40 years without being implemented by successive governments.
.
He said that if that law was used, corruption would have been reduced drastically in Nigeria.
“If you know public servants or directors that have properties, bring their names. I have been asked to focus on the public sector corruption which is the endemic one.

“We can investigate anyone with a source of wealth that cannot be explained.”he added.
Earlier, the director of Say No Campaign, Mr Ezenwa Nwagwu, expressed the organisation's worry about the mode of prosecutions, especially those carried out by anti-corruption agencies.

He stated that the Say No Campaign and other Civil Society Organisations are ready to partner with the presidential aide to make his job easier.
His words:“There are compromises involved. There are constraints in government that we don't have, so if we partner together, we'll be able to do much more.
“We want to be able to screen out particular areas where we will be able to assist you.
“There is a personality cult around the fight around the anti-corruption fight and that is not helpful. We want the citizens of our country to own the fight.”
.
The party made the allegation on Monday, September 4, in relation to series of allegations levelled against the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, by the senator representing Bauchi Central, Isah Misau.

So this man wants to do another abandoned property?

I can see these niger delta dolts can't invest on their own without taking igbo properties like they did after the war.

Nigger-area and backward mentality

If the owners are paying property tax on the properties, trust me, it won't be empty.

E for make sense o. Imagine if the number of empty houses in ABUJA are seized, rent will crash like the naira. cool
Some estates have never been occupied and yet the landlords don't care. This is a sign that they were possibly acquired with stolen funds. Which biz man invests so much and leaves it as a non earning asset for years and is not bothered at all?

This Obono-Obla guy is too flippant with words to have found his way into Nigerian Justice Department, is still a misery, listening to him as he spew trash in support of DSS vandalism and extortion of Judges with impunity, he, being a legal practitioner advocated that they suffer the same fate with Dasuki...that moment, I gave up on Nigeria Justice System.
Obla and his gang have only proven that in Nigeria "life is a privilege and not a right"

Its over 2 weeks since Buhari received SGF et al report and nothing have been done till now...they have adopted the 6 weeks strategy.

All over the world, people have summer/vacation house, confiscating opposing voices house with defeated Judges cannot guarantee their masters victory come 2019...the day of reckoning is coming.

How does it concern you if the houses are empty?

Some of those properties are owned by people who acquired them through legitimate means
