Igbos want Federal Capital Territory ( FCT ) ministerial slot


Igbo investors in the FCT, Abuja, have called on the President-elect, Gen. Buhari, to consider them when appointing a minister for the FCT, saying they control over 70% of investment in the territory. Speaking on behalf of the investors during a media briefing in Abuja, the
chairman of Zaudan Pazeri Property Owners Association, Elder Friday Ugoala, said: “It is on record that Igbos are key players in terms ownership of property, merchandise and hospitality outfits in the territory, and can lay a claim to over 70% investment in the FCT.

We have reasons to demand for the slot of a FCT Minister to ensure our investments are protected. History has shown that those ministers who come from areas that do not have so many stakes in the FCT do so much havoc to investments in Abuja. This is because they do not have people who cry to them about the pains they feel. We are uneasy that if such era continues, our investments will continue to suffer and we do not want that to happen.”…… analysts say d Igbos actually deserve at least 95% of d total ministerial slots……
