Centre for Transparency Advocacy and eight other Sub- grantees supported by CHRICED and MacArthur are implementing the FCT OI project which is aimed at Promoting the Rights of Original Inhabitants (OIs) In Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Based on the broad outcomes of CHRICED, CTA is focusing on Promoting Cultural Values and Environmental Rights of Original Inhabitants (OIs) in Federal Capital Territory (FCT) through Drama and Art Forms The Original inhabitants (OI) of the Federal Capital Territory were made stateless following the creation of Abuja as the capital of Nigeria. The implications are that the people lost their livelihood, identity, environment, and voice among others. Due to the influx of people from not only different parts of the country but from all parts of the globe, different norms are values were introduced and seems to subsume the values, cultures, and ways of life of the indigenous people of Abuja. Historical, cultural and art heritage sites are blasted due to extractive mining activities by construction companies or fortune seekers and for urban development.

Such activities have not only impacted negatively on the environment but has diminished the cultural values of the people. The project will enable FCT OI’s work towards an inclusive, resilient and sustainable development pathway, especially in the context of the devastation imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic Centre for Transparency Advocacy (CTA) launched her project, Promoting Cultural Values and Rights of Original Inhabitants (Ois) In Federal Capital Territory (FCT) through Drama and Art Forms which is aimed;
