Abuja - Former President Goodluck Jonathan and some ministers who served under him have been accused of appropriating reserved plots of land in Abuja to themselves.
The plots acquired by Jonathan and his ministers were designated as green areas, flood drains, city buffers, recreation centres, sewage lines, urban farming and city monuments.
Addressing journalists on Wednesday, Chairman, Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, Senator Dino Melaye, described the action of Jonathan and his ministers as “satanic”.

Others are the former Trade and Investment Minister Olusegun Aganga; Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus and FCT Executive Director Ismaila Adamu
Melaye blamed the immediate past former Minister of the FCT, Senator Bala Mohammed, for the indiscretion.
He noted that Mohammed in his bid to satisfy some powerful Nigerians before the end of his tenure, disregarded the wisdom of his predecessors and the vision of the founding fathers of Abuja.
