The FCT Executive Committee (EXCO) has expressed grave concern over numerous uncompleted and abandoned buildings dotting the Federal Capital City, Abuja.
The FCT Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed, expressed this concern on Monday during the FCT Exco meeting, held at his residence.
Senator Bala Mohammed, who presided over the meeting, reiterated that such structures poses very serious security threat to the well-being of the City.
“The EXCO noted the huge security implications of these buildings on the lives of the residents of the Federal Capital Territory and directed the FCT Department of Development Control on how to minimise it”, the Minister emphasised.
He also expressed concern over the outward appearance of some structures, which seem to be in dilapidated state and warned that the trend must be reversed immediately.
While addressing the Exco, he directed the FCT Development Control Department, to as a matter of urgency, enumerate all uncompleted buildings as well as undeveloped plots in serviced areas and advised property owners in the territory, especially those completed but unoccupied to make effort to illuminate them and provide security lighting and personal guards.
