A group, which identified itself with the name, Ohaneze Ndigbo Christian Youths in Diaspora, has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to probe the immediate past Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim over his role in the Centenary City project in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

The group issued a petition by its president general in which said Centenary City, from Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) records, is partially preserved by Company First Limited represented by Esther Onoji and Basic Start Limited represented by Jennifer Onah, whom he defined as Anyim’s assistants.

“The scheme of declaring the Centenary City as a Free Trade Zone is to give waiver to the owner which has been robbing Nigerian government of revenue,” the leader of the group said.

The project, whose foundation stone was laid by former President, Goodluck Jonathan in June 2014, is said to be a private sector-led project that will birth a smart city similar to Dubai, Monaco and Singapore. Given a free trade zone status, the city covers 12.6 square kilometres with only 20% allocated to residential.
