President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged to immediately appoint an indigene of the original inhabitants in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) into the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

This is contained in the communiqué of a week-long National Stakeholders Dialogue on Rights of Original Inhabitants in the FCT, held in Abuja, organised by the Resource Centre for Human Rights and Civic Education (CHRICED), 10 Cohort of FCT Original Inhabitant Groups, and John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The event with the theme, ‘Building Resilience, Fostering Recovery: FCT Original Inhabitants And the Struggle for Social Justice’ was part of activities marking this year’s United Nations (UN) International Day of World Indigenous Peoples celebrated every August 9.

The participants called on the government to return all occupied spiritual sites or pay compensation where necessary.
