We are ready to move to Shere Galuwyi- Jabi monarch

The Esu of Jabi 1, Alhaji Yakubu Auta, has reiterated the willingness and readiness of his people to relocate to Shere Galuwyi resettlement site, in Bwari area council. 

Auta, who spoke through his Assistant Secretary, Mu'azu Ahmed, explained that majority of the people in Jabi Masallachi are now eager to move into the new site, because they are ‘choking at their present abode.’ 

This is coming on the heels of reinvigorated move by the FCT administration to complete renovation works in the settlement, located about 15 kilometres from Mpape, a suburb in Bwari. 

Recall that the FCT had issued a quit notice to some police personnel, who had taken possession of the uncompleted project without permission few years ago, which expired since February 14, 2018. 

The traditional ruler however maintained that the government should ensure that essential things like schools, roads, water, markets, hospitals and police station that are supposed to be in the place, should be there. 

He said: "my people and I are ready for resettlement, and nobody can change our minds on it. I'm the paramount ruler, and majority of my people have agreed that we want to go, and nobody can change our minds. 

"All we believe is that the government should uphold its promise of provision of essential social services and amenities, which will stop us from wanting to return to the city centre." 

He warned individuals and organizations trying to cause disharmony in the community to desist from such, as nothing will change their position to move
