Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has revoked  the land ownership rights of Presidential Candidate Peter Obi and former Cross Rivers State Governor , Liyel Imoke in Abuja. 

This action was taken as part of the revocation of 165 plots of land whose certificate of occupancy was withdrawn.
