The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Administration has concluded plans to fumigate Abuja.

FCT Minister Malam Muhammad Bello, who spoke through his media team at an interactive session with members of the FCT Press Corps in Abuja, said the action would improve the environment and reduce Lassa fever.

He said the FCT Administration had cleared outstanding debt of over N250 million owed cleaning and security contractors working in the FCT district and general hospitals, adding that the debt cleared was for the services rendered till last December.

According to him, the administration extended the contractors’ services to December this year to allow plan for new engagement from the 2017 fiscal year.

On Avian Influenza (Bird Flu), Bello said the FCT Administration has eradicated it, as no new case has been reported since February 9.

The minister, in a statement by the Deputy Director/Chief Press Secretary, Muhammad Sule, said the FCT Administration would give bailout funds to financially-handicapped FCT area councils to pay two months’ salary arrears.  “The area councils have been mandated to clear the remaining one month debt.”

He said the FCT Administration has structured the repayment plan for the bailout to be from the 10 per cent statutory payment to the area councils from Internally Generated Revenue.
