The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has vowed to sanction developers who are violating the master plan of the city.
According to the Senior Special Assistant on Inspection, Monitoring, and Enforcement to the FCT Minister, Attah Ikharo, the distortions of the Abuja master plan is due to the excesses of estate developers, adding that the FCTA would not hesitate in its efforts to monitor and enforce the law on erring developers.
Speaking after demolishing clearing structures within Seman Metropolis Estate and Palms Residences in Lugbe area of the FCT, he said;
“All developers must ensure that they have genuine land and approved plan before commencing development.
“You must also not exceed your boundary, because we see boundary extensions. So developers who contravene, we will be coming very tough on them, and that is the mandate of the Minister. You cannot rape the Master plan and go free”
