Senator Bala Mohammed, Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Minister, has called for increased participation of both Nigerian and foreign private investors in the development of the various sectors of the FCT. He stated that only 15 per cent of the territory has been developed.
Mohammed spoke, wee-kend, in Abuja while receiving a consortium from the United States of America and the United Kingdom, operating under Osike Synergy Limited, led by Mrs. Remi Aiyela and Mr. Christian Udechukwu.
The consortium, which is made up of Ana Global Corporation, Allied Steel Building, LANGAN Enginee-ring and Environmental Services, FK Construction Company Ltd, Philko Compa-ny Ltd and Nicon Construction Limited, is seeking approval to build a five-star hotel and a mass housing district in Abuja.
Some members of the group were part of the trade delegation of the Lord Mayor of the City of London, Rt. Hon. Alderman Bear who visited Abuja and Lagos last week.
