Reps Oppose Relocation of Ministries to Abuja Suburbs

The House of Representatives yesterday threw out a motion seeking to compel the Federal government move Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) out of the Central Business District of Abuja to other Area Councils in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Sponsored by Rep Godfrey Gaiya (PDP, Kaduna) the motion sought the leave of the House to among other things, urge the Presidency to relocate some of the MDAs from the city centre to other Area Councils of the FCT in order to decongest the city centre.
