Building owners urged to comply with development plan
Property owners in the Federal Capital Territory have been advised to strictly comply with required rules and regulations in physical development, to avoid sanctions.
Speaking when he monitored the removal of access gates, around the popular Ahmadu Bello Way, at Garki and Area 11, the Director, Development Control Department, Mukhtar Galadima, noted that the gates contravened the required standard for the FCT.
Galadima pointed out that the building owners deliberately closed the entrance gates into their premises and opened illegal ones that faced the popular Ahmadu Bello Expressway, adding that department has to enforce compliance to ensure that the building owners conform to the FCT standards.
He maintained that the removal of the illegal gates opened by some banks and other business outlets was a continuation of earlier planned actions, which aims at sanitising the entire FCT, adding that the exercise would continue until sanity is restored in the territory.
The director stated that the department has intensified monitoring of the affected buildings to ensure that the owners complied with the required standards.
Some of the access gates, which were removed by the department during the exercise, included Access Bank gate at Garki, a gate leading to Life mate building, JMAP Plaza gate and Efab Plaza entrance gate, among others in Area 11.
