The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has earmarked four hundred hectares of land in Wasa, Waru District for relocation of Apo mechanic village.

Abubakar Makama, chairman of the relocation committee disclosed this after a visit to the site on Tuesday.

The coordinator Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Felix Obuah had recently inaugurated a 19-man technical team on behalf of the administration to see the relocation of the auto technicians.

Makama stated that they are starting with the Apo mechanic traders before the artisans because of the pressure from the traders and ongoing road construction in the area.

According to him, ” As they are on ground now, they will take the perimeter again, until when they finish their work, we would be able to tentatively say, this is the size. But for now we can say 391 hectares, that is almost 400 hectares for the Apo mechanic business men and the Artisans.

“We are starting with the Apo Mechanic because of the pressure and ongoing road construction within the area”

Makama added that, ” What we are saying in terms of accessibility, the relocation site is well connected with many expressway. If you start from the main Apo Junction, the expressway construction is going on as you can see, how the road was diverted as we were coming in, and then as we were also joining the Apo-Karshi road, you can see how they were linked with another expressway through Waru district up to the Wassa district”.
