The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has threatened to revoke any undeveloped plot in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) two years after infrastructures have been provided in the area.
Speaking during the removal of illegal structures around Zuba Interchange, coordinator, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Umar Shuaibu, gave the owner of an empty plot, near Major Oil Ltd, Zuba, two weeks, to commence the development of the area, or risk revocation.
Shuaibu noted that the law permits the administration to revoke any property which has not been developed, within two years, after infrastructures have been provided.
Accompanied by the ministerial taskforce on environmental sanitation on a cleanup exercise, the AMMC boss stated that undeveloped plots constitute insecurity by harbouring criminals and miscreants, adding that the aim of the exercise was to keep Abuja clean at all times.
He maintained that his office would leave no stone unturned to stop all illegal activities wherever they take place, adding that he would also ensure that legal businesses take place in authorised places.
Shuaibu also noted that there are designated motor parks and markets across the city, for legitimate businesses, but frowned that people prefer to use unauthorised places, just as he called on residents to stop conducting businesses in illegal places in the territory.
