By Umar Shuaibu

Advocacy planning was a prescription meant for urban planners, the theory applies to all professions and disciplines that confront the political and ethical dilemmas bound up in their practices-social work, public health, public administration and all of the social sciences that deal with urban policy. In the context of acquisition and development of land in the FCT, advocacy planning shall include:

1. Advising the Authority on the liberalization of land acquisition and development by relaxation of strict requirements wherever it exists.

2. Guiding the prospective developer on how to apply for land and successfully get allocation without engaging in illegality.
