Natives of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have called on the 10th National Assembly to work in the interest of the indigenous people of Abuja by helping them to end their prolonged plights.

An elder statesman and one of the major stakeholders of the FCT, Danjuma Tanko Dara, who made this call on behalf of the natives in a press briefing on Tuesday, congratulated the newly inaugurated lawmakers, urging them to listen to their cries.

Dara said that they had been long neglected by various governments, saying that it is time for the government and the National Assembly to pay attention to the needs of the indigenous people of Abuja.

He called on the 10th National Assembly to put into consideration the fact that the original inhabitants of Abuja are indigenous to their territories, their ancestral land which they have lived for centuries.

He said, “The indigenous people of Abuja own the land; the land is their livelihood, their dignity, and pride. They have cultivated the land which is their greatest material and spiritual asset.’’
