Adebayo decried the negative impact of land grabbing on investments in the sector, urging the FCDA and other departments to work together towards restoring order in the sector.

“We have received numerous reports of land grabbers operating in the FCT. These individuals exploit the gaps within various agencies to carry out their criminal activities. It is crucial for departments to collaborate, especially now that there is a committed minister working to elevate the FCT,” Adebayo said.
