The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has vowed that the ongoing sanitation and traffic control around satellite towns must be strictly obeyed by the residents.
This was even as it warned residents who were bent on abusing the development regulations of the nation’s capital, to desist from the act, stating that the Department of Development Control won’t relent in demolishing illegal structures built anywhere.
Chairman, FCT Ministerial Committee on City Sanitation, Ikharo Attah stated that the ongoing City Sanitation exercise in satellite towns , has been authorised by the Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello to checkmate development activities and ensure that contraventions do not fester.
Attah who led a combined team of the task force in continuation of the exercise yesterday, stated that over 80 illegal shanties demolished at Gwarimpa were encouraging insecurity and criminalities within the neighbourhood.
He also said that the exercise at Nyanya was targeted at removing the partaker market and all obstruction and human activities to the road dualization to ease traffic gridlock.
Attah said the Minister had expressed displeasure over human activities that are responsible for the return of traffic gridlock on FCT roads, saying that the administration will do everything possible to clear all illegalities.
He added that the structures demolished at Angwan ndadi, a suburb of Nyanya was a total contraventions that shrank the street into a very narrow path, and it was committed by lawless residents.
According to him, FCTA is making enormous commitment towards the provision of infrastructures in Abuja, and would do everything within the law to protect sanity of the city.
