Sauka Cleanup: FCTA Meets Community Leaders To Halt Developmental Infractions Along Airport

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has engaged Community leaders and other stakeholders to hint them on the rationale behind the aggressive cleanup exercise and removal of illegal structures around the road corridors along Airport road.

While noting that the Administration has perfected plans to plant trees along the road corridors, calling on residents of the community to help protect and nurture them.

Speaking on behalf of the administration, the Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to FCT Minister,  Comrade Ikharo Attah who addressed  the stakeholders from the community warned that the cleanup may be extended beyond the road corridors,  should the residents resort to further illegal structures development. 

He stated that FCT Minister , Malam Muhammad Musa Bello had earlier visited the community and saw the growing illegalities  and other developmental  infractions , has vowed not to relent until that axis of the Airport road corridor was fully cleaned up.

Attah further stated that, Sauka community, located few kilometres away from the popular Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport,  is strategically located along the major gateway to the City center,  hence the efforts to rid the place of all nuisances. 

According to him, ” Our coming to Sauka was due to  the Minister’s visit, during which he complained that  the illegal activities at the fringes of the community  was constituting nuisance. 

” The cleanup around the area may last for a long time, because from our investigation the illegal activities are still going on there, especially around the Mosque. 

” Unfortunately,  the Chief’s house falls within the area where the Minister asked us to cleanup. We are hoping that the residents do the needful and stop illegalities”, Attah added. 

The Community leaders,  led by the Counsellor representing Guiyi Ward in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), Hon. Sunday Bikko and some of the Chiefs pledged to stop all illegalities going on in the community. 

They also agreed to dismantle the illegal markets and motor park located by the road corridors which was agreed were the causes of the nuisances in the community.
