Government insists on strict implementation of Abuja Master Plan

The Minister, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Bello, has insisted on the strict implementation of Abuja Master Plan to avoid congestion being experienced in Lagos.



Bello said this at the ongoing two-day retreat for members of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) Board on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 in Abuja.

The minister, who chaired the 7th FCDA Board, warned members against deviating from the original Abuja Master Plan, saying that it would affect development of the city.

He urged them to bring in their wealth of experience to bear on the assignment and to leave indelible footprints.

According to him, there is need to present a reputable capital city for the future generations, built on the legacies of hard work, commitments and dedication to nation-building.

Bello, who was represented by the FCT Permanent Secretary, Mr Christian Ohaa, told the 10-member board that the retreat could not have come at a more auspicious time than now.

“The FCDA is entrusted with the mission of building a world-class city with standard infrastructure on quality service delivery, which no doubt placed huge responsibilities on your shoulders.

“The board is expected to set out broad-based policy guidelines, key performance indicators, technical services, support to actualise the goals of the building a first-class city comparable to the best in the world,’’ he said.
