Presidency Distances First Lady From Abuja Land Dispute

THE Presidency Friday moved to distance the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, from an Abuja High Court judgment on Thursday in favour of the wife of the former President, Mrs. Tarai Yar’Adua, in the dispute over a choice Abuja parcel of land located in the Cadastral Zone.

Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Bala Mohammed, Friday stated that the litigation was an affair between the FCT Administration and Turai and not the African First Ladies Peace Mission, the original allotee of the land.

At a press conference on the matter late yesterday in Abuja, the minister, through the Permanent Secretary, John Obinna Chukwu, stated that Mrs. Jonathan, who is the incumbent First Lady, was never a party to the suit.

“The FCTA wishes to clarify that the judgment delivered pertained to the process followed in the revocation of the said plot of land and that the court case was between the FCTA and Hajia Turai Yar’Adua’s NGO, WAYEF.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the FCTA wishes to restate that the litigation was an affair between it and Hajia Turai and neither the African First Ladies Peace Mission, the original allotee of the land, nor Dame Patience, who is the incumbent First Lady of Nigeria, was party to the said suit at the Abuja High Court.”
