The Senate is set to probe former Presidents, Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan over the alleged violation of the Abuja master plan.

This was disclosed by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, Senator Dino Melaye while speaking to journalists on Wednesday, February 10, 2016, Vanguard reports.

“With this administration of change, it is no longer going to be business as usual,” Melaye said.

“Permit me to remind FCT administration again by stating that this committee will not hesitate to ensure that all administrative anomalies, misappropriation of funds or misapplication of laws as the case may be, occasioned by the past administrations of FCT, are fully addressed. This is what justice demands in these circumstances; to right the wrongs.

“Therefore, the committee is worried and frowns on satanic and misleading advice and recommendation to convert very important and beautiful natural endowments or features which are very scanty like the world acclaimed Maitama Hills, popularly known as Ministers’ Hills, which could serve as a tourist attraction to the residents of FCT.

“I want to state here again that if the bourgeois of this country need a special allocation, a new district can be dedicated to them and not destroy the beauty of the city centre, a national monument like the Maitama Hills," he added.

Melaye also reportedly said that anyone indicted in the probe would be sent to Kuje Prison.
