In view of the urgent need for the review of the already distorted Abuja master plan, the Administration has braced to address critical issues arising from the implementation and abuse of the FCT master plan.
Consequently, a stakeholder conference on the theme: “Repositioning Abuja for the Development of a Sustainable City,” is planned to hold within the first half of this year.
Similarly, a charge has been given to the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC) and other concerned organs of the Administration to implement the report of the Committee set to look into the problem of uncompleted and abandoned buildings in the FCT.
These decisions were part of the resolutions of the FCT Exco meeting held on Thursday.
In her memo to the Exco, the Director of Urban and Regional Planning Department, Zaliha-u Ahmed (Mrs) identified the challenges in the implementation of the Abuja Masterplan by past Administrations which resulted in a myriad of problems.
Some of these problems she noted include: unprecedented population explosion, land use conversion and distortion, non-adherence to the provisions of planning laws and regulations, funding challenges and resettlement issues among others.
FCT Exco resolved to proffer practical, realistic, achievable and sustainable solutions to these Problems.
