FCTA Warns Area Councils Against Giving Land Approvals | Independent Newspapers Nigeria


The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has once again warned the six Area Councils in the nation’s capital against giving approval for land in any part of the territory.

Director of Development Control Department, TpL Mukhtar Galadima gave the warning on Thursday while briefing newsmen on the reason the administration demolished some poultry farms in Kubwa, one of the satellite towns in the territory.

He added that all approvals for land allocations in the territory must be endorsed by the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello.

Galadima , however, frowned that some people usually go behind the scene to use the name of area councils in the territory to grant or back date land approvals to unsuspecting residents, which he noted is totally illegal.

He further stated that, the department would address the challenge, as part of its plans for 2021.

Galadima further explained that the poultry farms in Kubwa were demolished by the department, because the farms were operating on a site designated as Kubwa District Centre, meant to accommodate facilities, such as stadium complex, shopping complex, markets and others facilities in the area.

The director hinted that the department has plans to organise a joint parley with heads of the area councils in the FCT, to tackle the
challenge and to address the public on the roles and responsibilities of
the department to avoid illegalities.

Galadima stated that as part of the new FCT Parking Policy, the act of
having event centres in parks and gardens in the territory is totally
unacceptable, adding that the department has stopped giving approvals to event centres in parks and gardens n the FCT.

He stated that the department also carried a demolition
exercise on illegal structures at Tee & Cee Park in Area 3 yesterday,
because there was an abuse of development plan in the area.
